    my name is Tim Harris. My Grandfather, Doctor Peter Martin, is buried here in this cemetery. Do you have information on where approximately within the cemetery he is buried? Any information you can provide will be most welcome.

      We don’t have any burial records as of yet so we only know of the graves whose markers we have uncovered. From the dates on Find A Grave, he probably is buried in the new section. It is about 10 acres in size and we have maybe a 20% cleared.

    I had never been in Evergreen Cemetary before today. I was appalled with its condition. So in researching I saw where you had attempted to help here. My hats off to you. I applaud you. And I maybe able to have some young adults who would help at East End. Actually I was wrong..I was at Woodlawn where Arthur Ashe is buried…

      Thank you for letting us know about family buried at East End. We do have GPS coordinates for Charles Leslie Lee’s grave so we should be able to find it fairly easily. We work out at the cemetery most Saturday mornings, weather permitting. We would welcome you to come out and we can help you locate your family graves. You can see a calendar of when we are working at: https://eastendcemetery.wordpress.com/work-calendar/ John
