Riverside Cemetery, City of Oswego, N.Y. Pt 1  
Town of Scriba, N.Y.

This is just a partial listing of burials at the Riverside Cemetery in the City of Oswego, and was generously donated by Sue Wilson, who has many Beardsley ancestors buried here, including her gx3 grandfather, Samuel Raymond Beardsley, Col. of the 24th NY Regiment.  Sue has sent in two pictures of his Civil War memorial at Riverside Cemetery. 
    Here are directions for the web site to Riverside Cemetery in the Town of Scriba, Oswego Co., NY: This cemetery is located on the east side of County Road 57, a half mile south of the intersection of CR 57 and State Road 481 (Where the Oswego County Records Center is/was.).  That intersection is 2  miles south of the intersection of SR 481 and SR 104 is downtown Oswego, Oswego Co., NY.  Pete Pierce
If you have any names you would like to contribute to this cemetery list, please email the coordinator hereFor more information on any of the names, please contact the local 

Town Historian or Historical Society.

Part 1:

* Note:  10/22/01It has been brought to my attention that though this cemetery is often considered a city cemetery for Oswego, Riverside is more accurately located in the town of Scriba.  For those of us who know, it isn't a problem, but so many people don't know that.
Thanks.  Nat Siembor.

My note:  (Possibly its very close to the city line.  On the Cemetery list there are several cemeteries called Riverside in the various townships, and this can lead to confusion.)
