November 14, 2008
We would like to inform you about a special occasion happening on Saturday, November 22, 2008 for Evergreen Cemetery. The cemetery has officially been declared a state historic cemetery in the state of Texas. We will hold a dedication ceremony to reveal the historic marker. We will also honor those who are buried in the cemetery by having relatives who are in attendance call out the names of the deceased family members.
Our records for descendants of those buried in Evergreen are very limited. Therefore, if you have received this letter please call or forward this information to anyone you feel would be interested in attending this dedication. We would also like to have names and addresses of all possible descendants for future reference. Please send them to the address for Donna Davenport below or bring them with you when you come.
The Crosby Historical Society will meet at the Crosby Brethren Church, 5202 First Street, at 2:00 p.m. for a short meeting and a reading of the history of the cemetery. The group will then travel to the cemetery at 2:30 p.m. The cemetery is located at 13702 Sralla Road, in Crosby. If you prefer to attend only the dedication ceremony, you should plan to be at the cemetery by no later than 2:45 p.m. Please park on the outer perimeter road of the cemetery and leave the center circle drive open for the dedication ceremony.
In the event of inclement weather, please bring an umbrella. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
