Cemetery History

On July 30, 1852, the Village of Manitowoc president and clerk were authorized to take $150 from the general funds in full payment for a lot of land purchased from B. Jones for a burying grounds to be deeded to the Village of Manitowoc.

Prior to that date, the village had owned a small cemetery at 8th and Park Streets. But with the growth of the village and because of an Asiatic cholera in the early 1850’s, the need for a larger cemetery became a necessity.

According to Occupational Monograph 56, an account of Manitowoc history from 1850 to 1860 written by Caroline Hubbard in 1904, the remains of the dead who had been buried in the cemetery on North 8th Street, were removed and re-buried in Evergreen Cemetery, which at that time comprised about 10 acres.

An ordinance approved September 19, 1853 and printed in the Manitowoc County Herald Newspaper states “To regulate the burial of the dead in Evergreen Cemetery, and to promote regularity and economy therein..."

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
