The Evergreen Cemetery is the borough of Jim Thorpe’s 2nd non-denominational, public cemetery. Originally it was laid out as the public cemetery for the borough of East Mauch Chunk, but in 1954 the two boroughs of Mauch Chunk and East Mauch Chunk merged to form the borough of Jim Thorpe.

The BURIAL LIST
The following were compiled by using the records of the Evergreen Cemetery Association, combined with a survey of the gravestones made by myself in the fall of 2004. The Association records give date of Name, Date of Death, Section, Plot, and Plot Owner. I’ve added the columns showing Date of Birth and Notes. Much of the information taken from the Association records needed correction, particularly in regards to the Date of Death. The given date was often a few days AFTER the actual date of death, and may originally have been the date of burial, not death. Name spellings also needed correction in some cases. Most importantly, the Association records listed no burials prior to 1923 – all burials shown in the following lists prior to that date had the information taken from the gravestones or other sources.
