City Cemetery: (a.k.a. Court Street Cemetery) "From 1883 to 1907, Jews were interred in the B'nai Brith (IOOB) section of the City Cemetery (also referred to as the "Jewish Cemetery" in obituaries, mortuary records, etc. as the "Court Street Cemetery"), which was established in 1875. It was located between the present North Main Avenue on the west, North Stone Ave. (then called North Eighth Ave.) on the east, Second St. on the south and present-day Speedway Boulevard on the north. The cemetery included sections for Catholics and Protestant denominations and various fraternal organizations. In 1907, the Tucson Town Council passed an ordinance prohibiting burials within the city limits. Bodies in the City Cemetery had to be moved over the next 20 years to Evergreen Cemetery."

Evergreen Cemetery: 3015 N. Oracle Rd., Tucson, AZ 85705. Activated in 1907 when the Town Council ended burials within city limits, most bodies were relocated to the B'nai Brith section. However for some burials in the old cemetery, there are no records indicating that the bodies were actually moved. Perhaps no family members were available to effect the removals. Since that time, homes and commercial establishments have been erected on the cemetery grounds. Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
