Edward Scrivner is buried in Fairview Cemetery in Norway, Republic, Kansas.
Dennis Scrivner, in an e-mail to Lavonne Mohler, gives the following reason as to why they are buried in different cemeteries
Nancy died on Jan 25, 1877 and was buried at Mt. Pleasant cemetery, in Vining, KS. . Edward had donated the northwest corner of his farmland for this cemetery. The cemetery is now called Pleasantview cemetery. In 1871, Edward & Nancy sold their farm (to Job Short) & moved to Sherman Township in Clay County, KS, which is near Vining. When Nancy died in 1877 she was buried in Vining. At the time of his death on Jan. 21, 1885, Edward was living with his son Sanford in Norway, KS. His family buried him in Valley cemetery in Norway instead of taking him to Vining. A lot of the Scrivner family is buried in the Norway cemetery.
