Ellard Cemetery is presently located behind 1751 Gadsden Highway, Birmingham, Alabama 32235. The cemetery adjoins Jefferson Memorial Gardens. It is fenced and well maintained. The gate is usually locked. Although this area has a Birmingham address, it is actually located in Trussville. According to Ellard descendants, this cemetery was established on March 14, 1888 by deed. Daniel J. Eastis (1861-1887) had already been buried on the property at this time according to the Ellard family. The remains of Nancy Ellard (1822-1958) were moved there at a later date from her original burial place at the Barton Farm. The Ellard Family and Barton Family are connected by marriage. I transcribed this cemetery on Jun 28, 2008. It is a complete inventory of the readable headstones in the cemetery. I have utilized various data bases to verify and amplify the information presented on the headstones. The transcriber has utilized various data bases to verify or enhance the information provided on the stones themselves. I would like to express my appreciation to the Ellard Family for the information they provided about the establishment of this cemetery. This information was updated on July 13, 2009.
