A special thanks go to my co-worker and cemetery buddy Lewissa Huber for her dedication walking the cemetery for three hours a day in 100 degree heat.
Thanks also to Reinetta Smith, my daughter Nicole Walter, and Michael Huber, son of Lewissa Huber for helping locate graves.
Charles Evans dream was to have a nonsectarian cemetery excisable to all residents of the Reading area. He donated 25 acres of land in 1846 in an area which at that time was considered country. On September 5, 1847, Charles Evans died and is buried near the entrance of the cemetery.
Today the cemetery has grown to 127 acres, 5000 trees and over 65,000 burials.
