Scope and Content

This series is comprised of a single volume containing copies of deeds issued to purchasers of lots in the Evergreen and Springville City Cemeteries. The deeds are used to document plot ownership. They includes such information as the deed number, purchaser name, date issued, plot description, amount paid, name and signature of the mayor, and a witness date and signature by the city recorder. Inter-filed in the book are a number of other documents, including a sexton's report to the mayor and city council from January 1906. There are also a number of certifications of plot purchases, some of which are associated with a deed in the book and some which are not. In 1932, the city changed its method of selling cemetery plots and ceased issuing cemetery deeds.
