Champagnolle Cemetery (aka Champagnolle-Castleberry Cemetery) is located southeast of the community of Calion, very near the Ouachita River. From Calion take Champagnolle Road, passing over on the levee alongside Calion lake.  A few hundred feet after you have come off of the levee, at the top of a hill, there is a road to your left, which presently has a sign for Champagnolle Cemetery/ Champagnolle Landing.   The original cemetery set along the banks of the Ouachita River, but part of it was washed away in a flood. After the flood the cemetery and remaining graves were moved to higher ground away from the river to it's present day location in 1882.  May 7, 2005    Janice Holzer 

 

**Down the road (eastwardly toward the river) from the cemetery, about 1500-1800 feet, on the left in the woods is the old Langford Family Cemetery.  I did not take photos.

The following information was furnished by family members:

 

*(1) JOHN B. ANDREWS: The family of JOHN & LUCAS ANDREWS, & JOE

HOFFROG, intends to place a new marker for John, just as they did for Lucas & Joe. All three men drowned in a boat accident on the Ouachita River somewhere between Lock & Dam 8 at Calion and Monroe. James Alfred Parker of Calion gave information on this to the family - "they were working with a logging crew on a boat, hauling barges of logs to Monroe; a storm suddenly came up and sank the boat and the barges, all three men drowned and it took a long time to recover their bodies. James Alfred Parker's father, Alfred, helped to bury them at Champagnolle. The bodies are located between the grave of Joe Hoffrog's old marker and fence.
