MURPHY CEMETERY

Natchitoches Parish, LA

The Murphy Cemetery is located on the outskirts of Natchitoches, LA amid the river farmlands. From Natchitoches, traveling south on Hwy 1, cross the Cane River Lake bridge and immediately turn left (traffic light) onto Woodyard Drive, (which, once out of the city limits, becomes Fish Hatchery Road/Parish Road 514). Follow this road along the river for five and one-half miles and the cemetery is on the right.

There are thirty-five marked, inscribed burials, one large concrete slab with no inscription, and three broken and illegible markers. While the cemetery is surrounded on three sides by flat, cultivated fields which are usually planted in cotton or soy beans, a large, old tree provides both shade and character to the fenced cemetery. A lovely view of the winding river can be seen on the north side. Only a few of the tombstones are new; most are old and of interesting variety.
