Blythe Cemetery

northeast of Duty

This cemetery is located in upper Catahoula Parish very near the Caldwell Parish line. Directions: Upon turning onto
Dan Road (north of LA Hwy 124), Danville Landing Road is located 0.5 miles on the right. Cemetery is located
behind the mail box inside the fence. This is near Duty, between Duty and Rosefield on LA Hwy 124.
The small fenced in area was grown up in weeds and bushes, but could easily be cleaned up.
The cemetery is listed in the USGS Geographic Names Information System. I did not find a website that contained
the names of who was buried there. I took pictures and listed them in "Find-A-Grave".
The person that lived nearby showed me the graves and expressed his wishes of himself and his wife to be buried there too.
Thank you Mr. Palmer for your assistance.
"These two graves were the only ones there, no others I'm sure. I looked for depressions and mounds for
possible unmarked graves, but there were none. The "fence" fit around both of the graves that
were right next to one another."
Marlon has posted this cemetery to the Louisiana Cemetery Preservation website.

A very big THANK YOU to Marlon Ebey for locating and documenting this cemetery,
and giving permission to post this information and pictures on the site.
