MERCED: Merced County Print
  • Evergreen Memorial Park, Inc: 1480 B St., Merced, CA 94340, (209) 383-7488. According to older members of the Merced Jewish community, as well as a map at the cemetery and Historical Society, Jewish Cemetery, now part of Evergreen Memorial Park, shows little evidence of its existence. There is one tombstone with Hebrew on it, for "Henry Wolff " (died 1887) and "Arthur Wolff " (died 1886). Other tombstones nearby have possibly Jewish names, such as Isaac Jacob (age 9) and Willis Jacob, sons of J & R Jacob. Local genealogist Joyce Gandelman (209-847-5556) is attempting to track down Jewish burials in the cemetery.
