CEARNS in Carrollton Cemetery, New Orleans, Louisiana
Posted by: Mary A (ID *****9703) Date: July 08, 2004 at 15:33:15

I would like to discover the names / dates / relationships of the people interred in the Cearns plot of the Carrollton Cemetery in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is shown as #189 in Section 2 (New Plan). The online transcription only shows the surname CEARNS. I called the cemetery and the only information I could get from them is this:

Plot is owned by a Mrs. F. Cearns, who is deceased.

The last person buried there is Marion ZOLLDAN on June 27, 1981.

I do not know the names of others. I was referred to the NO public library to get more details. I am located out of Louisiana so it is impossible for me to research there.

I do not know if Marion Zolldan is a male or female. If that person if female it is possible she is the wife(widow?) of Henry Joseph CEARNS (#3). Her birth name would be Marion Louise LESSLIE. They married in 1918 in New Orleans. I am thinking that perhaps Marion was widowed and remarried Zolldan. That Marion was born about 1901, making her about 80 years old in 1981.

There is a Marion Zolldan on the social security death index, matching the death year and location of the Marion Zolldan in the grave. That Marion received last social security benefits while residing in St. Bernard parish, which is a suburb of New Orleans.

The parents of Henry Joseph CEARNS (#3) are Joseph J. CEARNS and Frances Antoinette DELATTE. He died in 1920. It makes sense to me that his widow, Mrs. F. Cearns, would have been the owner of the plot.

I do not know for a fact anything about this gravesite except the two statements from the cemetery office. I appreciate any help anyone can provide. Thanks!
