Evergreen Cemetery
Palm Beach County, Florida

Arnold Ave and Lantana Road
Lantana FL


Contributed by Tom Shoemaker, Mar 19, 2002 [evltroll@bellsouth.net]. Total records = 18.

The location of this cemetery is on the SE corner of Arnold Ave and Lantana Road (which is east of I-95 and west of the FEC train tracks). This cemetery consist of 18 head stones which represent 8 pioneer families.

In a local history book by Mary Lineham (out of print), it is stated that there are actually about 40 graves there with most of them not marked.

The first to be buried there were two ship wrecked sailors who had been washed ashore. Other sailors were known to be buried there including two from the shipwreck of "Inchulva". Another unmarked grave is that of Rose Bradley who was born in November 1878 and died at age 16. An unnamed woman who died in a fire has a grave there. Also, it was stated that Will and Jessie Forrey are buried there but do not have tomb stones.

There is a cross that says "Father", but according to a interview a historian had with an old time resident, this is misplaced and is the marker for the AuClair family.

What I have put in "quotes" are words that were on the stone.
