Marthaville, Natchitoches Parish, LA

Cemetery
***********************

The Marthaville African-American Cemetery is located one-half mile north of Marthaville, Natchitoches Parish, LA, on Hwy 120. It appears to be an old cemetery, with a number of obvious but unmarked graves. A striking feature are the very large cedar trees, which appear to have been planted to mark certain grave sites.
