Restoration of Risley Cemetery
Del Himsel and Paul Schitter performed the initial repair work in 2003. Trustees for Dubois and Pike
Counties were contacted and agreed to share the cost of repair materials and cost of the memorial
marker. Cemetery history was heavily researched to obtain the most complete list of those buried here.
When preparing the installation of the memorial marker later in 2003, an arrowhead was uncovered. The
arrowhead was placed on the county line, facing north, in the position it was found.
