I know there's one in DeRidder, La- but I can't tell you the name of it. I'll have to consult my wife who is from that area. I know Merryville has one.

My advice is to simply contact Negro funeral homes...they will know exactly where these cemeteries are located.

The Glapion family (who claim to be direct descendants of Marie Laveau) have operated funeral homes in NO East for many years; you might find them to be helpful if you start with them.
