Martin Cemetery, Coburn/Bellwood, LA

Martin Cemetery
Sign

Martin Cemetery is located on Forest Service road #304, which is approximately two miles south of Bellwood, LA. Continue on Forest Service road # 304 for about three miles west of LA 117 and the cemetery sign is on the right. This is about two miles east of the old Coburn/Middle Creek settlement. A narrow road leads to the cemetery, one-quarter mile north. It is believed that this cemetery is actually in Sabine Parish, although in earlier times this area was part of Natchitoches Parish.

The cemetery appears to have been much larger than the presently fenced area, as parts of an older fence are still standing. The gravesite of Annie McDaniel Martin is fenced separately but adjoining the fenced Weldon graves. A local resident indicates that Charlie Martin is buried in this area also. The older fence appears to have sites that could be unmarked graves, including some rocks and concrete mounds.

Visitors should be aware that Forest Service Road #304 traverses the Middle Creek swamp area from LA117 and caution is advised in wet weather. At such times, approaching the cemetery from LA118, then east on Herrington Road would be prudent. However, the cemetery itself is located in a low area, so visiting during dry, summer weather would be most advisable.
