Fontenot/Fruge Cemetery
Posted by: Karla corkran (ID *****2671) Date: August 03, 2003 at 09:44:55

I am trying to locate the Fontenot/Fruge Cemetery in the Eunice Louisiana area. My maternal grandfather, Don Louis Fontenot b. October 14, 1849 in St. Landry Parish. He died in 1926 and married Alidia Marie Fruge'(b.August 25, 1854). He was listed in the 1920 census. One of my family members thinks he is buried in this cemetery. I found a 1790 map in a book by J. Cleveland Fruge'(1970) called The Fruge's of Fkaitaic. Don't know if he drew the map or got it out of another book? The map shows the cemetery about North/North East, 3 or 4 miles from the then future site of Eunice, Louisiana.It was then called Prairie Fakitaic. Augustin Frute' I was the holder of the land, sec. 43. The cemetery seems to be on his property. I have checked all cemeteries online in St. Landry and Evangeline Parishes but he isn't listed there. Apparentely this is a cemetery no one has researched. Thanks for any help. Don Louis Corkran
