EVERGREEN CEMETERY





Evergreen Cemetery is the oldest public cemetery in Marion County, Florida. A marker for the cemetery reads as follows...

Reserved on July 8, 1850 as the first public burial ground for Ocala. Here are graves of those who founded the county seat, of others here during its early years and of confederate and union veterans of the civil war. Nearby are interred Negro residents both slave and free. They too in loyal service shared in the upbuilding of the city.


 Through the early 1900's, many articles were written about the deplorable conditions of this historic cemetery. Cows goats and hogs ran freely through the cemetery knocking down and destroying  markers and fences. It was a disgrace to the citizens of Ocala at the time. Having said that...Memorial Day Celebrations would take place there each year and flowers strewn across the graves in remenbrance of the departed. Many of those interred in the cemetery are lost due to records being burned and markers that are no longer in existence. I am adding the names of persons buried in this cemetery that I have found  in old newspapers. This may be the only proof  of where  a loved one is buried. I will also be adding their obituaries on the obituary page found elsewhere on this site.. There is also a death listing, which can be found under "Chapters" in the "Between The Pages" section of this site. The death listing is usually just a mention of a death without much other information recorded. I will be adding them  a few at a time , so keep checking back. Note: I have inserted in parenthesis the word Evergreen at the mention of  "the old cemetery," as this was the name of  the cemetery.
