Riverside Cemetery Question

Can someone clear up some gravesite information for me?  This is regarding Riverside Cemetery.  Find A Grave lists Ole Billing having a gravesite there (no dates given), however family members have seen a gravesite for Olof Billing but no Ole Billing.  Does anyone know if it is Olof's grave (died in 1906 at age 7) or Ole's (died at age 16 in 1922)?  Was Riverside Cemetery even established in 1906?
