Riddle Hill Cemetery
Riddle cemetery sat directly west of Malden on Highway J.
As you climb to the top of the ridge there is a large peach orchard
on the left. On the right a Rev. and Mrs. Haynes own a home.
Where the trailer park sits now was the Riddle cemetery.
This was bull dozed @ 1969 to 1970 and turned into a mobile
home park after the Tompkins family sold the property.
The following are confirmed burials for this cemetery:
