Starlight Cemetery is on the grounds of the Starlight Missionary Baptist Church which is on Martin LutherKing Drive in
DeRidder, Louisiana. It is a very large cemetery with the graves scattered--not clustered as we are used to seeing. It is in an
urban location but has trees growing on three sides. We were looking for Community Cemetery when a friend volunteered to take us to Starlight. "Thanks" go to Audrey Reid of Sugartown for help in locating this cemetery.
