Josserand Memorial Park Cemetery

To reach the cemetery from Groveton, TX, take US Highway 287 South for about two miles to the Josserand Baptist Church, go right & proceed past the church to the next intersection, turn left & go one quarter mile to the Mount Olive Baptist Church.

Mr. Willis, the great-great-grandson of Peter Josserand (1844-1905) said his ancestor build the Josserand Community of about 900 around the Josserand Lumber Company, erecting houses, a church, and the school in which his grandmother was a teacher. Peter Josserand provided the cemetery at Josserand.
