Based upon what I can find out, "Catholic Cemetery" is most likely St. Joseph's Cemetery, 1500 Main Street. There is a transcription online so if the names you seek are on the transcription then you know for sure you have the right cemetery. On the other hand, if the requester gave you a list of names and says they are buried in "a" Catholic cemetery, then that's a different story. I believe that St. Josephs is the oldest existing Catholic cemetery in East Baton Rouge (1824)but I can't say whether it is still being used. Did the person give you grave locations (plot, row, etc.)? Without that info, finding a grave can be tough. Rick
