|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Carlin Family Cemetery is located across Bayou Teche behind Arlington, which was built by Honore Carlin. The earliest burials occured about 1810 and the first recorded in 1815. At that time the closest Catholic cemetery was in St. Martinville. The dead had to be transported there by road or boat via Bayou Teche. Several families had cemetery plots set aside and sought consecration of the ground through their parish priest. The Carlin Cemetery is one of those private burial grounds, but there are some buried there who are not related to the Carlins.
