Little Hope Cemetery
Bienville, Bienville Parish, Louisiana

Little Hope, Bienville LA

Lat: 32° 17' 41"N, Lon: 93° 03' 45"W
T15N R7W Sec 11

Contributed by Doug McBroom, Jul 17, 2005 [doug324@aol.com]. Total records = 126.

From Castor LA, drive about 7 miles on Highway 4 east toward Lucky LA. Turn left onto Divide Road (BP661) driving north, turn left at the fork onto Little Hope Road and continue for about .4 miles. The cemetery is on the left or west side of the road.

After I walked the cemetery twice I compared my transcription with the census taken by Mr. George R. Park in 1987. There are also a lot of "cement markers" with no names.

This was once a church cemetery, but the church no longer exists, while the cemetery is in good condition and still in use. The cemetery is now operated by a the Little Hope Cemetery Association.

I visited the cemetery in 2004 and again in 2005. This contains all existing and legible stones and markers, as well as a few from the 1987 census for those with no marker.
