Resources

Florida’s First Coast is the home of Moultrie Creek.  Here you will also find the oldest city in the United States – St. Augustine.  The earliest graveyards of our European forebears are found here – along with many interesting stories.  In addition to the articles posted here, there are many research resources for those interested in this area.  This page serves as a directory to them.

A map pointing to the cemeteries in St. Johns County is being constructed using Google Maps.  This map will continue to grow as cemetery information is found and posted.

A growing collection of photos for Graveyards in St. Johns County can be found at Flickr.

Association of Graveyard Rabbits Group at Diigo. Association members are building a directory of research resources using the Diigo bookmarking system. All are welcome to visit the group site and take advantage of this growing collection of useful links.

WeRelate Cemetery Portal. WeRelate is a community-built platform for family history research and collaboration.  In addition to building your family tree and connecting with others researching your same lines, WeRelate members are building a huge support infrastucture of historical, biographical and source material which includes cemeteries.  The cemetery portal page will quickly connect you to the growing number of cemetery pages.

    Does anyone know anything about the graves at Lambert’s nursery? Looking for great grandparents. They were black, and died in 1947. They worked for, and/or with white moultrie residents. My grandmother worked / played at the store/merchantile, operated by judge Watson’s family at Watson rd and us1.

      I have some notes on that cemetery somewhere. Once I track them down, I’ll pass them on. Not sure there’s much left on site, but there are probably some kinds of records to be found. Can you give me your grandfather’s name?

      Anthony,
      The St. Augustine Historical Society has a publication written by Harold Strickland in 1997 titled Cemetery at Lambert’s Nursery AKA St. Paul AME Church at Moultrie.

      You can contact them to learn more about the publication and the Cemetery. The library’s phone number is 904-825-2333.

      If you know the Hagens then you know about the Wildwood Church. The Hagen family has maintained that church and cemetery as long as I can remember. The church itself was unused for years, but just recently it has become a Catholic church. Not an “official” Roman Catholic church but some kind of “on our own” Catholic church. Weird, but interesting.
