Natchitoches Parish, LA

The Welch Cemetery began as a family cemetery on the property of Joseph and Mary Welch in 1859 with the death of Mary Welch's sister Susan Conoway. The second burial was that of H. Jackson Rogers in 1869, the young son of a neighbor of the Welch family. The burials listed are inside a fenced area.
In the early 1900's there was a fever epidemic and various other persons were buried in the Welch Cemetery. Some of these persons were from as far away as Natchitoches. None of these graves are marked, and the exact location of many of the burials has been lost.
The Welch Cemetery is located on private property and has been maintained as a cemetery by the Welch family. The cemetery is not open to the public. The recording and the history of this cemetery was provided by a descendant, Frank Welch.
