Because of erosion by the Mississippi River, the levee has had to be set back several times. Some of the graves in this cemetery would be where the river now flows, some would be under the present levee and some under River Road.
On 29 Jan 1999 I began collecting information from tombstones, grave markers and vaults on burials in St. Charles Borromeo Cemetery in Destrehan, La. This project will continue until all information in this cemetery has been recorded.
