On Louisiana 1081, 63 miles North of Covington, Louisiana, on Louisiana 437. Take 1081 to the north side of the little Bogue Falaya River bridge. Walk through a woods road across a creek, then keep to the left along a ground up trail through a branch. The grown up cemetery is just up the hill a little to the right. At one time it had been fenced. Mathew Ferry John Barker d d 1908, aged 54 William Barker d 1908 Pennah Fitzgerald 1863 - 1896 wife of John Fitzgerald There are other graves that have the old time iron markers that cannot be read. My dad, Emile V. Martin, Ed Timberlake and another man helped the father of a young boy to be buried there. They lived near the Dubussion place. My dad is 85 years of age, and cannot remember their name. Also from Emile V. Martin: there was signs of the old Stafford home, and the old Barker home still visible along this branch when my dad moved on Stafford Road in 1904. The branch runs into Little Bogue Falaya right after it crosses Louisiana 1081 on the southern end. It is not marked on the parish map. Also talked with Mrs. Net Taylor, and she told us the following were buried in the cemetery: Margaret Barker Ferry, wife of Mathew Ferry Sam Barker She also told us that William Barker was a young man when he died in 1908.
