Are you still looking? There seem to be two Evergreen Cemeteries in Detroit:

1) Evergreen Cemetery
19807 Woodward Ave.
Detroit, Wayne county, Michigan USA 48203
Phone: 313-368-1330

2) Evergreen Cemetery
W. Warren Avenue at Asbury Park St.
Detroit, Wayne county, Michigan USA

Hamtramck, Michigan (where the undertaker was located) is technically a city but it is surrounded by the much larger city of Detroit. Use Google Search to find 18859 Lamont in Detroit and you'll find it located very near Hamtramck:

On the map look a little to the west of 18859 Lamont to see the major street Woodward Avenue. Along Woodward Avenue you'll see Palmer Park. The first Evergreen Cemetery above is within Palmer Park.

Below, link to a blog about Evergreen Cemetery at Palmer Park:

Contact the cemetery to find the exact location of the burial. The cemetery should know the location even if there is no headstone. Then go to Find a Grave website on the internet. There you can post a request, asking a volunteer to take a photo of the gravesite that you have located.

I hope this helps!
