Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done extensive research and have catalogued the Matherne Cemetery and the adjacent Rogers Cemeteries in Bayou Blue, Louisiana, in Terrebonne Parish near the city of Houma. I try to keep my records up-to-date and to take photos of all graves with headstones. The current listings in Find A Grave for these cemeteries have some interments confused - some of those shown in the Matherne Cemetery listings are actually buried in one of the Rogers Cemeteries. There is actually no such thing as the Matherne-Rogers Cemetery, although people do sometimes refer to the whole complex as such in obituaries.

I have also catalogued and taken photos of other cemeteries in my area, namely: Daigle Memorial - Presbyterian; New Hope-Grace Memorial; St. Louis Catholic Cemetery and Mausoleums. I am presently cataloging and photographing the Magnolia Cemetery.

I also have many relatives buried in the McDonoghville Cemetery (formerly called McDonogh Cemetery) in Gretna, LA. I have begun to place memorials on that site.

Thank you for photos of my great uncle & aunt's grave sites at McDonogh Cemetery, Gretna, Louisiana. I was concerned whether their sites made it through Katrina.

Louis Blum Memorial
Thanks for giving a good hunt for this memorial.
Although, I'm surprised you were unable to find one, it seems to happen somewhat frequently. I would love to know the story, on why a memorial was not erected for what appears to be an accomplished member of his community...

Hi, it was nice to hear from you. I am transferring all 3 Brownlee memorials to you. That way maybe you can add more to their memorials. N, we are not related I got all the info off a LA website and made sure to include all the references with it. Everyone deserves to be remembered forever.
