Where is my family, Moxness/ Riley?

Where is my family, Moxness/ Riley?

Posted: 1124203077000
I know I have family roots in Park Falls on both sides, but other than the census records I can find no info on them My Ggpa Hans Moxness was even mayor of Park Falls. My gpa and ggpa Riley lived there, were married there and are buried there, at least my gpa William Leonard Riley is, where is the info on these people buried? Any help would be appreciated.

Specifically what kind of information are you looking for? It is hard to answer a query when first names are not given and information requested is vague.
The following are buried at Nola in Park Falls. Anybody you are looking for?

James and Nancy S. Riley are buried at Forest Home Cemetery in Fifield.

Research at the Price County Register of Deeds would be a good place to start to look for more information on vital records and land records. Have you read the 1989 Centennial book "100 Years on the Flambeau"? It may be available through interlibrary loan from Park Falls Public Library. Don't give up - just look around.
