Evergreen Cemetery, Johnson Township|
St. Paris, Ohio
Submitted by Karen Johnson-Heber.
|Established in 1841 with the first interment. The cemetery began on the McMorran family land. The McMorran family sold the land around 1877 to the township for a township cemetery. The name Evergreen was derived from the the many Evergreen/Cedar trees which lined and the cemetery. This cemetery is an active cemetery and has been well kept by the community.|
SUBMITTER NOTES: The photos and research are copyrighted by Karen Johnson-Heber. NO authorization is allowed for posting
my photos to findagrave.com or any other website or personnel family tree (ancestry.com) Other sites have transcribed my
research notes without citing the source of their notes.
This is the most comprehensive “reading” of the cemetery done to date. This cemetery was compared to interment and lot records on file with the cemetery. Many more interments were identified without monuments due to this research. This site is the only site on the internet which has plat maps, postings of transcriptions of the original interment records which has included the section and lot. It is not transcribed from any publication or use of any other cemetery sites. On file, but not online the submitter has copies of the original individual lot records by section. Great care was taken working with the cemetery personnel to assure accuracy. There were many discrepancies’ identified by the submitter and these were corrected by the cemetery personnel and the original records were updated to reflect my research.
Originally photographed in 2007 with updates in 2009 and 2012. All interments and cemetery monuments are current as of 15-Oct-2012.
Not all obituaries have been posted online as of 1-Nov-2012. However, submitter does have many more original copies of obituaries.
