Cole Cemetery

Read by Jack and Evelyn Cole July 25 1999

This is a small cemetery which has been in use since the early 1900s. It eluded us by seeming to be in Calcasieu Parish
when in truth it is in Beauregard Parish. Carole Dowers assured us by e-mail that it was in Beauregard Parish. She lived
next door to it as a child and had to go to school in Ragley because she lived in Beauregard Parish. From Highway 90 in
DeQuincy travel east about 4 miles to Pete Gimnick Road (there is a blue sign for Cole Cemetery), turn north and follow
Pete Gimnick road 3.6 miles. The most traveled direction will turn onto Royer Lane but you will go straight on for another block or so on Pete Gimnick Road which dead ends at Cole Cemetery.
Cole Cemetery is set in a wooded area but you can see homes nearby with dogs barking now and then.
