CEMETERIES of HENDERSON COUNTY


Evans Cemetery

Evans is a mixed-race cemetery about five miles north of Darden on the Darden-Christian Chapel Road. The cemetery is full. There are about a dozen fieldstone-marked graves. David Donahue recorded Evans Cemetery May 3, 1992 and checked and updated it December 2003. Jonathan K. T. Smith visited Evans Cemetery in 1995, shortly after the current fence was erected.

The Johnsons were blacks, former slaves of the Evans family. They were buried outside the original fence of the cemetery to the north. When the new fence was erected in the 1990s, the black burials were included within the cemetery. Jonathan Smith noted "eight other adjoining graves marked with white crosses which may 'mark' black graves."
