Brusly in West Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery
West Baton Rouge conveyance records reveal that on June 28, 1833, Jean Baptiste Hebert donated land for use as a cemetery for the congregation of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. With Hebertís permission, the tract had already been used as a cemetery. Around 1860, the encroaching river took the original tract. At the churchís expense, Hebertís remains were moved to the present cemetery. The present cemetery and church are on property acquired from Ambroise Blanchard in 1838.
