|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Matherne Cemetery is a separate cemetery from the surrounding Rogers Cemetery. It was established by members of the Matherne family for family members and anyone else in the community who needed a place for burial. Families had to provide the vault or tomb and pay for the interment services to the funeral homes, but the plots were at no charge. There are very few unfilled spaces in Matherne Cemetery. Members of the Rogers family subsequently established burial areas, first to west, then behind the Matherne Cemetery and finally a large piece to the east of both the Matherne Cemetery and the already existing Rogers Cemetery.
The Matherne Cemetery is bounded on the south (back) and east by the concrete drive. The west side (right side as you look across the bayou from the road) is at the flagpole. The Samart Funeral Home was established on the Rogers property.
