Historic Highland Cemetery c.1813

Preserving Baton Rouge's Oldest Cemetery

Because records were poorly kept by Catholic Church priests and Protestant burials were not listed at all, the following lists have been complied from probates, funeral notices, family records and recollections, tombstone inscriptions and newspaper notices.  There are still many omissions so, a list of unconfirmed burials follows the known ones.  Researchers: Evelyn M. Thom and Barbara Strickland, September 1976.  Please contact us if you know of any missing or incorrect information!
