Eh la bas y’all! In addition to our ongoing series of historical and genealogical information, we will occasionally post pictures of the final resting places of our ancestors as we travel to cemeteries across the state and the Gulf Coast. You never know, we might come across one of your relatives!
Our first post is the Honore Family plot in Saint Louis Cemetery No. 3 in New Orleans. This Honore family has roots in Pointe Coupee Parish but migrated to New Orleans in the late nineteenth century. The marker on this plot bears both French and English inscriptions and dates back to at least 1895. Among those buried here are:
Joseph Honore (1833-1907); Emesie Chesse Honore (1843-1931); Marie H. Decuir (1871-1895); Josephine Honore Haydel (1881-1972); Justine Honore Saulet (1888-1967); Lawrence A. Honore (1910-1961); Curtis M. Haydel (1910-1937); George E. Jacobs (?-1951).
