EVERGREEN CEMETERY
Located near Notch, Missouri on the south side of Highway 76, and one mile east of Indian Point
Road. Established in 1901 on land donated by Levi Morrill "Uncle Ike" in Shepherd of the Hills.
The cemetery was plotted into 200 or 300 lots. Each 10 X 16 lot sold for $3.00 in 1901. The
cemetery was started near a dirt wagon trail called "the trail that nobody knows how old", now
Missouri Highway 76.
Over the years the cemetery has been a tourist attraction with people stopping to look at the
graves of characters depicted in the book The Shepherd of the Hills, written by Harold Bell
Wright and published in 1907. Some headstones have two names on them, the real name of the
deceased, and the fictitious name used in the book.

We are grateful to Brian Shay who listed this cemetery.
