Note: This is a full size Gilbert family monument with names and inscriptions for several family members engraved on several facings. The portion shown for this entry is for William, his wife Almira, and their son Charley. Other family members will be posted separately.
William Gilbert July 12, 1834 - March 2, 1908
Almira Moore Gilbert Wife of Wm. Gilbert April 8, 1836 - Oct. 4, 1901 (some sources use DOB of April 9, 1836, but the engraved DOB is Apr. 8, 1836)
Charley Gilbert Son of Wm & A. Gilbert Nov. 5, 1862 - March 27, 1863
Special note - Although there is an inscription for the son Charley on this monument, his death and burial pre-dates the establishment of Evergreeen cemetery by just over seven years. It is likely that he was buried in Pattison cemetery, where there is also a gravestone for him near his Uncle and Aunt, Robert & Margaret Gilbert. There is no plot record of his being reburied to Evergreen cemetery, so this inscription may be in his honor, but his physical burial is probably elsewhere, perhaps still in Pattison cemetery. It is possible that he was reburied in this Gilbert family plot and such reburial not recorded, of course. There is no individual headstone in place for him on this lot as there are for all other members of this Gilbert family, so his "burial" in this plot should be considered with some caution.
There are no post-ems notes associated with this record.
