Everyone needs to understand that there are two separate, and distinct cemeteries here.  It looks like one very large, all encompassing cemetery.  Eden Cemetery surrounds St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery ,on the southerly and westerly sides.  The Catholic Church has a practice of purchasing land adjacent to municipal cemeteries for their own interments.  There are no well-defined barriers between the two other than a row of bushes planted on part of the southern boundary of St. John the Baptist.  If you do not find your loved-one’s name in this listing for Eden, check St. John the Baptist.

This listing is composed, for the most part, from one created by Crescent City Historian, Mrs. Margery Neal Nelson.  Not only did she survey the cemetery, she “diagrammed” it with lots, plots, blocks and notes of family relationships and other information where known.  The original is written in cursive longhand and in different colors of pens and pencils—which photocopy with varying, usually less than satisfactory, results.  These factors have proven extremely challenging to the volunteers attempting to organize the list into a computer-friendly format.   That is why it has taken so long to get any part of it published online.  Updates have been culled from the obituaries published in the Palatka Daily News and the Crescent City Courier-Journal, as well as a list created by Mack Wills in 2008. 

Thank you for your understanding. Mary E. Murphy-Hoffmann
