Riffe Cemetery was also called Blain Cemetery:

The death certificate for Dixon Lee Cooley indicates that he was buried in Blain Cemetery. He is listed on the transcription for Riffe Cemetery.

The death certificate for Cecil A. Blain indicates he was buried in Blain Cemetery, near Orrick but he's not listed in the transcription for Riffe Cemetery.

Blain Cemetery is listed as #4 on Ray County History 1973 cemetery map p. 230

Both Riffe (#3) and Blain (#4) are marked on this map, but this may be incorrect.
