Lindsey Cemetery

Established ca 1861

Dry Creek - From La. Hwy. 113 at Dry Creek, go north until La. Hwy. 394, turn left and go 1.1 miles and turn left on the road there, drive four-tenths of a mile then turn left for one-tenth of a mile.Established by Burkitt Lindsey, a Kentuckian, the Lindsey Cemetery still serves the Lindsey family and collateral relations. The earliest marked grave is that of Burkitt's grandson, Luther Miller, who died in 1861. The only known example of a wooden crypt in Imperial Calcasieu exists at this very rural cemetery.

Lindsey Cemetery is one you have to have instructions to find. Starting in Dry Creek, go west on LA 394 to the Dry Creek Baptist Church. Just before you get there, turn south to the first left hand turn. Follow it till you see the sign on the right to the cemetery. It is not advisable to try and find it in rainy or muddy weather. In dry weather, it really isn't a bad road.

This is a really old cemetery with many "lost" graves. Family members have tried to mark known family graves with approximate dates. This is to be commended.
