Ward Bend Cemetery
Franklin Parish, Louisiana

Lat: 32° 04' 46"N, Lon: 91° 35' 03"W

Contributed by Dorothy Atkins Nov 06, 2003 [dotatkins2003@yahoo.com].  Total records = 154.

From Winnsboro, La. take hwy 4 east about 11 miles to Ward Bend Road turning south, this roadd ends in the cemetery which is about a mile.

This is a very old cemetery, which is said to have some slaves buried here without stones. There are both black and white here, separated by the road. On left side of the road is black and white on right. There are some recent burials here and it is still accepting new burials. There is a sign that states Ward Bend Cemetery Est. 1828.

It was badly neglected for a while but now it is a very beautiful, well maintained cemetery. Lovely giant oaks and so quiet and peaceful like a park.

These records represent all existing and legible stones. There are many places that look like graves with stones and no inscription.

These records were compiled by Todd & Pam Ivy & myself, from the head stones, when we visited the cemetery on Oct 12, 2003.
