There is a book in the State Archives concentrating totally on cemeteries in East Ascension, western part of parish excluded. I am willing to get information from the book if anyone needs it.

Saint Phillip Baptist Cemetery is in Modeste.
Mount Calvary is 0.9 mi. S of Modeste.
Saint Marys is 2.91 mi NW of Modeste.

I will try to make a trip this month. These are about 30 driving miles from me because of the location of the bridge.

I am no longer living in Louisiana, so I can no longer do lookups.

Where is East Ascension? I am trying to find my father's grave, he died when I was small. I believe he is in or around New Orleans.

Dawn, Not sure where you live but Louisiana has Parishes, not counties like all other states. East Ascension is Ascension Parish but described as "East Ascension" because it is on the East side of the Mississippi River. The main city on the East Ascension side is Gonzales, LA. Between Gonzales and Baton Rouge is an area called Prairieville.

Here is a link

It is located behind the St. John Teh Baptist Church and can be found on Google at

If you do not live close, drop me a line at joey dot niquiporo at shell dot com with your father's info and I will gladly go take a look for you. It's a BIG cemetery!
