History of Evergreen Cemetery

The establishment of present-day Evergreen Cemetery began with the death of twenty-two-year-old James McMorran in 1841. His parents Samuel and Barbara, who had come to St. Paris around 1813, buried him on their family farm that stretched across Jackson and Johnson townships in Champaign County. In 1877, their descendants sold 7.5 acres of the McMorran graveyard to the people of St. Paris for $500.
