Join the Jacksonville Historical Society and author and speaker Kay Ellen Gilmour, M.D. for a daytime program on Thursday July 20th at Old St. Andrew’s beginning at noon.

On less than an acre of land at Olive and Linden streets is Jacksonville’s Historic St. Nicholas Cemetery. The cemetery’s 240 graves represent a wealth of fascinating stories — and you’ll hear some of these stories at the July 20th presentation. Family names in the cemetery include Bayard, Bowden, Call, Clinch, Falana, Ferris, Holmes, Rogero, Mitchell and many more — presenting a surprising cross-section of North Florida individuals. Dr. Kay Gilmour’s interest and years of work discovering the cemetery’s stories was inspired by her mother, who collected and preserved family records. Dr. Gilmour’s long association with the St. Nicholas neighborhood also contributed to her interest and an eventual book, A Genealogical History of Florida Revealed in the Historical St. Nicholas Cemetery.
