Murphy Family Burials in Riverview Cemetery, Centerville
Posted by: Dorothy (Dot) Duncan (ID *****4720) Date: April 17, 2003 at 18:28:40

I am looking for the tombstone inscriptions for C.C. Murphy (Christopher Columbus Murphy) (b. ca 1871) and his wife, Bridget Ellen "Nellie" (Tracy) Murphy (b. ca 1873) who are buried in Riverview Cemetery, Centerville, Turner Co., South Dakota.

Buried in the same cemetery are their son, John Wesley Murphy (d. Nov. 1972) and his wife, Gladys Mildred (Larson) Murphy (d. Oct. 1996) who were sent back to Centerville for burial.
I was hoping that someone might be able to put me in touch with a person (perhaps the cemetery caretaker) who might be willing to check out these graves for me since I am unable to get to SD nor can I find a Cemetery Book from the county that would give this information.

I have talked to Carol at the Recorder of Deeds Office who confirmed the presence of both C.C. and Bridget Ellen in this cemetery, but her records show no date of death for C.C. and only show the year 1954 for date of Ellen's death.

Could you possibly help me obtain this information?
