I am trying to locate the cemetery which holds the grave of James M. LaFitte, born in the Stonewall area (a few miles south) in 1892. Mr. LaFitte is buried in what may be a predominately Catholic cemetery probably located just south of Stonewall near Hwy 171.
I have not been able to find anybody in Stonewall to contact and can not locate a listing of cemeteries for the Stonewall area.
Mr. LaFitte was the father-in-law of Mrs. Bernard P. LaFitte, Sr. (Olney Willis Jarrell LaFitte), former librarian at the Mansfield library in the 50's era.
Does anybody know of such a cemetery near that location?
