CYPRIEN CEMETERY

Hwy. 23, Boothville, Louisiana
(Plaquemines Parish)

Beyond the Sunset

Regrettably, CYPRIEN CEMETERY (a.k.a. the Buras Family Cemetery) is called the Boothville Cemetery or the Boothville-Venice Cemetery, thereby insinuating that it is a public cemetery.  To my knowledge there is no public record dating the establishment of this cemetery, but this 'Graveyard' is mentioned in the Plaquemines Parish courthouse document, For a Change of Boundary Lines, dated July 27, 1889, that was signed by Cyprien, Pierre Leon, Pierre Romere, Hubert (Norbert), Elodie Eloise Buras, and Frank Scarrabin (husband of Elodie).  Therefore, we know that Cyprien Cemetery has existed since 1889 or earlier.

Besides Cyprien (and others on the west bank), we have ancestors buried on Devil's Flat, which I am told, is located above the tank battery at Ostrica on the east bank of the Mississippi River.  Grandpa Leon told me that his grandfather, Jean Pierre Burat, is buried there.  This ancestral burial site is submerged by water today; however, some of the remaining tombstones are partially visible depending on the ebb and flow of the river's tide.  Also on the east bank, there may be a cemetery at Olga where some Adolphs are buried.

This list is by no means complete, but this is what I have been able to assemble thus far.   Anyone having additional information or corrections that they would care to contribute may write me at: coludrovich2002@yahoo.com.

Excluding myself, sources for this compilation are: (the late) Ellen Buras Coludrovich, Ruth Knight, Gladys Stovall Armstrong, and Gloria Denet.
