Cemetery notes and/or description:
Established in 1849, Carrollton Cemetery in East Carrollton is owned by the city of New Orleans. Originally, it was divided into two sections: colored and white. The "colored" section or "potter's field" consists of mostly in ground graves which may explain the scattered human bones throughout this part of the cemetery, especially after Hurricane Katrina. Most of the headstones are wooden and hand written with many personal items such as teddy bears and toys. The "white" section consists of many elaborate tombs and copings. There is a small wall vault and a few temple tombs.
