The Young Family Cmt.Information?, The Plains, LA.

Is there anyone, who might have any published information on the Young Family Cemetery of The Plains Community of Zachary, Louisiana of East Baton Rouge Parish? I have a copy of Virginia Jennings' great book, " The Plains and the People ", but I am looking for particular demographic information on who is buried there, are they Young descendents, are they not?, and where they are buried within the cemetery. Has anyone documented the cemetery online anywhere?

Also, has anyone got any information on the "Mystery man", in the windowed case-iron sarcophagus and glass casket, that the Smithsonian came and took to Washington D. C. and put back in the latter part of the last century? Who was he? Why is he there? Was he related to the Young family or just a friend? I heard he was a perfectly preserved, " well to do " fellow, in a beautiful silk suit and ornate clothes, and he looked Spanish. Is there a marker for him there?
