Hope Cemetery - Baton Rouge, LA
When viewing your screen I noticed that East Baton Rouge and Baton Rouge parish was not included and Metarie, La. When will you publish them....I am looking for information on Hope Cemetery, I was told that it was located on Plank Road. I do not have the exact address. There once was a school and a church there also for black residents. The church has since moved to North Street and 39th street. I think the name is Mt Marion Greater Baptist Church...i have two pastors listed and I do not know which is present and past....Rev. Fuller and Rev. Billups....Rev. Fuller i am told use to keep up the cemetary grounds during his time....I have a lot of family in Hope cemetary but cannot obtain names or any other information on them....they are Robertsons which is sometime misspelled, Harris, Branch, Phillips, Banks, Morris, Richardsons, and many others....any help you can give will be appreciated.....Thank you Claudia Short send e-mail response to firstname.lastname@example.org thank you again......
