Evergreen Cemetery Richmond Virginia

I am one of a small group of volunteers who have volunteered to clean Evergreen Cemetery in Richmond, VA, the site of the grave of Maggie L. Walker, the first African-American woman to be a bank president.
The site has been sadly neglected for many years and is in dire need of clearing. Many graves are only discovered after the area has been cleaned. There are approxiametly 60 acres, which includes three other cemeteries.
We are documenting the graves found as we clean, but apparently there are few records to be found. If anyone has any information, especially pictures you would be willing to share, it would be greatly appreciated.
