The Riversdale Historical Society (RHS) is sad to share news of the passing on June 5, 2023 of George Davis Calvert, 3rd great-grandson of George and Rosalie Calvert of Riversdale. Davis was a strong and loving man, and a long-time member and staunch supporter of RHS. We will miss him greatly. His family has asked that contributions in his memory be made to RHS, and may be done by clicking here.
