YELVINGTON CEMETERY

 

Is comprised of two cemeteries, the 3RD MT.  TABOR MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH CEMETERY and the white cemetery.  Mt. Tabor is recorded in Deed Book 49 Page 12.   This is a Black cemetery that is still active.  Parcel #24-10-27-0000-0000-0001.   It lies at the southerly end of Yelvington Road.  Access is through a locked gate and lies south of the FP&L Power Corridor.   This cemetery is surrounded by lands belonging to John Browning.   SAN MATEO QUAD.  N 29o 37.218  W 81o 31.492.   (Neglected).

 

YELVINGTON WHITE CEMETERY is unrecorded and lies west of and adjacent to the Mt. Tabor Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery, on property owned by John P.  Browning Jr. on Parcel #24-10-27-0000-0010-0000.  It may have started as a family cemetery for the family and laborers of Gideon Yelvington, a planter from Georgia, who arrived in the territory and claimed his land during the Second Spanish Period. 

 

A survey of St. Johns County Cemeteries was conducted by the Church of the Latter Day Saints in 1947, and is on file at the St. Augustine Historical Society.  Yelvington lies at the intersection of the St. Johns, Putnam, and Flagler County lines.  Information from that survey is included because markers that existed in 1947 may not exist now.  However, any claims by the 1947 LDS Church survey that Gideon Yelvington came from England are totally false.   He is well documented in the ‘East Florida Papers’ of the Second Spanish Period in Florida, 1783-1821.

 

Directions are the same as for the 3rd MT.  TABOR CEMETERY.  Contact John Browning (386) 328-4158, or  (386) 325-1871 for permission to enter.  No more burials are being permitted on this site.  Also be mindful when you visit that the land in the area is a hunting preserve.   SAN MATEO QUAD.  N 29o 37.231 W 81o 31.534.  (Abandoned).

 

Photographs posted of the Yelvington Family section were taken by Mary E. Murphy during a visit in the early 1980s; other photographs were taken April 18, 2009 and finished on April 19, 2009.
