Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Dec 15, 1999, last edited Dec 06, 2010:
“Evergreen cemetery is about 2 miles northeast of Colville on Aladdin Rd. It can be reached by driving north on the main street of Colville, then take a right onto 7th Ave (Hwy 20) and continue till you reach Aladdin Rd. Take a left onto Aladdin Rd and the cemetery lies less than a mile north of 7th Ave. on the left side of Aladdin Road.”
“While not a perpetual care cemetery, I found it in fairly good condition. It is still being used occasionally for burial, only by previously owned lot owners. Many headstones are missing and some of the headstones were very difficult to read, resulting in the possibility of errors. Some are almost impossible to decipher.”
“The cemetery has three distinct sections running north and south, with two roads separating them. Each sections seems to be divided into bordered family burial plots, however in some areas the borders are deteriorating or missing, while in others the markers and stones are not there.”
“The cemetery gets some care to control the overgrowth, but the stones are not all kept cleaned and many are deteriorating beyond legibility, covered with lichen or simply crumbling. If anyone knows who owns this cemetery and holds the records, please contact me. The listings I have are dated from 1868-2004.”
“In February 2009, NeWGS requested (and was granted) a Certificate of Authority from the State Department of Archaeology & Historical Preservation for the Care and Maintenance of Evergreen Cemetery in Stevens County, WA. Later that year I volunteered to be chairman of the NeWGS Evergreen Cemetery Restoration Project. Much work has and is being done to improve this cemetery, per Gordy Struve .”
“I first surveyed this cemetery on Aug 19 & 20, 1999. I revisited on Jul 12 & 17, 2005, reading it with a digital camera. I found no stone for many that I found in 1999 and also some were illegible. An asterisk * follows those for which I have no photo.”
