Landhuis Hato - Evertsz Family Cemetery
Seven graves in various states of deterioration, on the grounds of Landhuis Hato (now 'Curacao Winery'). The earliest grave is for Kornelis Gerard Evertsz, Captain Colonel at sea and Commander in the harbor of Curaçao, who died defending Sint Annabaai from English attack on New Years Day 1807 (reportedly, a cannonball removed his head). His Mother and Father died in 1812 and 1815, and are buried here as well. The graves with half-cylinder caps indicate burial of someone with money and influence. These graves have deteriorated greatly in the past five years. Location: 12deg 10.894' N 68deg 56.942' W. Photographed July 2015.
