Search Texada Cemetery:

From MacArthur Drive in Alexandria, turn onto Bayou Rapides Rd. and go 13.3 miles. Continue past an old, weathered 2-story house on the left inside a very sharp curve and go approximately .5 miles farther, and turn left. Cross over a large drainage ditch, go through the
open gate / cattle guard (in a field) for approximately .5 mile. Bear to the right out of the field, drive through another gate at this point, and continue along the bayou bank for another .5 miles. Cross a small bridge over Bayou Rapides, and cemetery can be seen just ahead on a small rise.

The setting is beautiful; at one time, the plantation home Castile owned by the Texadas was located near the cemetery. Today cattle graze in the surrounding pasture, but the cemetery and several adjoining acres are contained within a wire fence. The cemetery itself has a beautiful iron fence with "Texada" on the iron gate on and the concrete entrance walkway. Japonicas, azaleas, camellias,
and other large hedges are scattered throughout the small cemetery, along with several very large crepe myrtle trees that are completely draped with Spanish moss. The cemetery has been recently enlarged and the iron fence extended at the back for future burials. This family cemetery is kept immaculately clean, as is the area surrounding the burial ground.
