Evans, Weld County, Colorado
Earliest stone inscription;
Emma L. HUFFSMITH died June 14, 1863 daughter of A. & S.A.
HUFFSMITH. Cemetery location is in Section 19, Township 5 North,
65 West. Inscriptions were copied March 1976. Records are kept at
Evans Town Hall. The town was platted on November 22, 1869, the
first town to be so filed in Weld County. To obtain a history of
the cemetery many people were contacted that were from old
families. Some said it had been known as Boot Hill before Evans
Cemetery. Others said they had always heard it called Evans.
Several said the town records were destroyed by fire in 1903 and
the records were destroyed again in or about the year1937. In 1911
vandals entered the cemetery and destroyed 20 of the finest
tombstones, and they could not be set up again. About 1957 Mr.
Henry BEHRENS, a native and long time business man of Evans, left
part of his estate to the cemetery for care and upkeep.
