Does anyone have ready access to Sagely's "East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana cemetery inscriptions"? The nearest copy I can find is 80 miles away. If you do, I'd appreciate a peek for the surname "Machauer". In particular, Christopher Alvin d. 29 Feb 1940 & Henry Adam d. 16 Apr 1944, both in Jackson. The first may have been a patient at the state hospital.

I do not see the surname Machauer (or anything similar) in the index.

Thank you for checking for me. Hmmm. Now, I wonder just where they might have been buried? I might have to get copies of their death certificates.

Hi, sorry I'm just now seeing this...a lot of patients from the hospital were buried in a cemetery near the town cemetery, but they didn't have headstones. The hospital may or may not have any info on who is buried there. If it's possible they were a patient, that's why there's no info in Ms. Sagely's book, she just did the available headstones.

I eventually got around to ordering a copy of Henry Machauer's death certificate. It only says that he died at the state hospital 4/16/1944 and was "removed" the same day to Jackson but does not say where he is buried. The funeral director listed on the D.C. looks like "P W Roberts". I wonder if there are any records in Jackson to indicate which cemetery he might have been buried in? Also, I was told that the records of burials at the state hospital cemetery were transferred to the state archives.

Patients that died at East were buried in their cemetery unless their families picked them up, it's part of the Jackson town cemetery. As far as I know there are no headstones, but if I'm remembering correctly not too long ago the DCI inmates (our local prison) made crosses to go on the graves as markers/headstones. I have also heard the burial records went to State Archives, but haven't looked there for them when I've been there.
