Just about anyone that was important to the growth of this gallant little town is buried in the Eau Gallie Cemetery. I may be biased, but that doesn't change the history, for it is written. In this cemetery rests Jesse Kerrick, owner of the grocery store and fire chief. Gov. Gleason and his family is there.
Here you will also find Dr. William Creel, the first doctor to stay in this community, a much loved man who was referred to as one of God's chosen people and the town named the new causeway spanning the Indian River for him.
My great grandfather, William Russell Roesch, first mayor of Eau Gallie, his son William Phillip and partner in running the Eau Gallie Record and family members all rest here. The stories of Ada, Nellie, Lena, and Clarence have been told.
There are many stories of others here who built roads, homes and churches, belonged to various organizations, all to help each other turn a wilderness into the neighborhood community known as Eau Gallie. But pictures are worth a thousand words.
