Listing in East and West Baton Rouge
I have relatives who were buried in East Baton Rouge. I would like to know if you have a listing for any cemetaries. I know one location is in Little Misery which is renamed now. The grave yard is next to a railroad track not too far from or on Herrell Ferry Road and/or Sharp Road. I was told that a Rev. Forrest use to clean the grounds..... He has long since passed away. Also there use to be a school house and a church there.... the church has moved to the north end of town. This is all the information that I have.... Since I do not live in the area I cannot obtain any additional information..... Please write me back with any thing you find.... Thank you...
