Ridgefield residents approve acquisition of Ridgebury Cemetery

Ridgefield residents voted at a town meeting Wednesday that the town should take ownership of Ridgebury Cemetery.  Some of the graves are pre-American Revolution.  Robert Keeler Reynolds managed the cemetery for over 72 years, but has decided to step down.  The cemetery is the final resting place of many Keelers, who were among the early settlers of Ridgefield.  A more than $300,000 endowment for upkeep of the 3-acre site will be turned over to the town.   There are still open plots in the cemetery.
