A grave for John Evans is listed at Mt. Moriah Cemetery with an incorrect death date. The death date listed for John Evans is 27 Feb 1858; this should be 27 Feb 1898. I know that this is my great grandfather, because the birth date is listed correctly ( 15 Oct. 1832), and the day and month of death (27 Feb) is listed correctly. Thank all of you for your work on the behalf of so many of us. Because of the information found on your web site, I plan to visit Mt. Moriah soon.
References to an "earlier record" usually refer to a survey conducted in the 1950's by
the Nevada County Extension Homemakers' Clubs, the original of which is on file at the
Nevada County Depot and Museum.
Since 1997, Jery and Jeanie McKelvy have conducted a periodic canvas of each cemetery in
the county and use additional resources to keep the listings current.
