Close-up of headstone inscription:


"Evergreen Cemetery is the oldest fully operating cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida. The first burial took place in 1881. The Evergreen Association was organized in 1910 as a non-profit corporation and purchased Evergreen from a privately owned corporation.

The cemetery is comprised of 170 acres and over 70,000 burials. When the cemetery was opened, remains were moved here from a downtown area near State Street and from the Old City Cemetery.

This cemetery has several sections for fraternal organizations and churches."
