White Lattier Abandoned Cemetery - Caddo Parish

UPDATE: To help clear brush from White-Lattier Cemetery and look for lost tombstones, call Jeff Girard at (318) 357-5471 or Gary Joiner at (318) 222-6112.

There is a LAGenWeb transcription of this Shreveport area cemetery. Recent photographs can be viewed at La-cemeteries.com . The LA Dept of Archaeology was contacted for further information. The last burial appears to be in 1916. There is at least one headstone that appears to have been broken, but fixed. The cemetery is noted to have quite a bit of leaf clutter. It is not known at this time who is the current landowner. http://files.usgwarchives.org/la/caddo/cemeteries/whitelatt.txt LA Gen Web 1999 La-cemeteries.com by Martin Gautier http://www.la-cemeteries.com/Maps/Caddo/Pics/White-LattierCemetery-CA157/CA157Pics1.htm
