New Orleans - St. Louis Cemetery

New Orleans - St. Louis Cemetery
Our guide claims that Marie Laveau was a good Catholic who didn't earn this notorious reputation as a Voodoo Queen. She was active in her Catholic Church, and helped to nurse the sick during the many epidemics.
She was allowed to be buried in the Catholic section of this cemetery. Many still believe in her supposed powers and make requests at her grave, xxx.
Most people were buried above ground because the ground is below sea level.
Sample of an older grave, where partial burial was successful.
Tom and I took the tour and found it fascinating.
