"The following names are of Physicians, Undertakers, Clergymen, etc. found
while copying the Burial/Interment records of Evergreen Cemetery in Oconto,
WI.  They are not all from (city of) Oconto.  Sometimes the name of the physician or
undertaker will indicate where the person died.  Most of the time only the
surname was given"
