This was in 1794-1825 the 800 arpent plantation of George Garig, a German settler from Maryland, "a resident of well nown[sic] honesty and one of the most skillful builders of cotton gins and presses in this territory."

Because families had been burying on this high spot for years, in 1819 he donated the one arpent graveyard under fence to the Catholic congregation. He was buried here himself in 1825. Cemetery was enlarged by later plantation owners, last burial in 1939. Restored 1976.
