Tombstone Tuesday: Unmarked Crosses Edition

Fuselier's Cemetery
Acadia Parish, Lousiana
Photo taken July 2010

On a trip to Acadia Parish, I stumbled on this little cemetery on a gravel road, far from anyone. There were several grave stones, but I was drawn to this line of unmarked crosses. Who were they for? Did the people all pass at the same time? Is this a special section of the cemetery? I sure wish I knew something about them.


  1. What a curious thing. Would the local historical society have any ideas?

  2. I could be wrong but it almost doesn't look like they are marking any graves. It's interesting

  3. Wonderful photograph! There are many cemeteries such as this one in Louisiana. You may contact the local society:

    Pointe de l’Eglise: Acadia Genealogical and Historical Society, Inc.
    P.O. Box 497
    Crowley, LA 70527

  4. Thanks for the comments and feedback. I'm a long-distance member of the local society there, so I'll just ask around and see if anyone knows.
