Royalton Cemetery aka Royalton Heights Cemetery pre-dates Riverview Cemetery. It is known as one of the oldest cemeteries in the county, and was the original burial ground for Royalton, St. Joseph and Lincoln townships. In about 1912 the cemetery was expanded and renamed Riverview. Many families owned family burial plots within the old Royalton section and were stated as such in local newspapers. 1934 brought improvements for Royalton Heights Cemetery. The entire Royalton portion was spaded, raked, grubbed and underbrush cleared in a general improvement program of those grounds. Also eighty gravestones were reconditioned and those sinking or tilting were placed upright and repairs were made to broken tombstones. In 1935 when additional land was purchased, to add more burial sites, it became impossible to see where one cemetery ended and the other began.   Keeping this in mind, as we do this study, there may be duplicates of some of the same individuals appearing in both listings.


The following partial burial listings contain many of the families that once lived in Berrien County or had family connections. For a full listing of this cemetery, the Berrien County Genealogical Society offers a book that may be purchased on the readings and studies done by the group. (See below link)
