Mr. Riffe’s New Stone !

Hello everyone,

My extreme apologies for the delay in posting this !  Mr. Crumley, descendant of John Riffe (pronounced “Rife” by the way), placed a new stone !  I BELIEVE John Riffe is his great grandfather, I could be off by a generation.  It’s a beautiful stone !  What a story it is, about how these two were linked back together through this blog !  I get a little excited about this place, and like an over-zealous paparazzi, I snapped 75-100 photos !  Below are a few of the chosen ones.  Enjoy !

Placement of John Riffe Stone, 11 September 2016

I really like how the original “Riffe” fieldstone was left in place.

One can see the marker for little Marietta V. Crumley (11 April 1883 -13 April 1884). John Riffe was her Grandpa. She was buried next to her Grandpa.
