Iles Cemetery
Rapides Parish
Louisiana  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Directions: From Alexandria, go south on US Hwy. 165 to Woodworth. Turn right at the blinking light (Parish Road 287, Castor Plunge Road), and continue past the Alexandria Water storage tanks. Turn right onto Forest Road 212 and continue a short distance to pass Forest Road 212-B. Turn
right at White Rock Road (unmarked). At the first fork, bear to the left; at the second fork, bear to the right. At the end of this road, a hill can be seen off to the right. On top of the hill is a small fenced cemetery.
The road is rough, but passable in dry weather.

This cemetery has approximately 20 or more unmarked graves
scattered around on about two acres or more of the hill. Originally there were several cypress markers in the cemetery, but today only one remains.

This cemetery is known to contain the remains of the Iles family, and probably their neighbors according to a descendant of one of the Iles slaves (being around 100 years of age in the 1970's) who attended several burials
here between 1880 and 1900. There were two fenced sections for each group (fenced separately, one for Whites and one for Blacks).
