Abstract : During September of 1999, human remains and a decorative casket element were recovered from a backhoe trench excavated within the limits of the former Braziel Baptist Church and cemetery complex (l6IV49), which is located a short distance to the north of the community of Cannonburg, Louisiana. The Phase I cultural resources survey and archeological inventory during which the skeletal material and the casket hardware were recovered was conducted in anticipation of a proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District concrete slope paving project designed to strengthen the existing artificial flood control Structure aCjoyle ;David R. /George ;Kari /Krause ;Susan B. /Smith nd provide additional protection against flooding in the Cannonburg area. As determined by the current investigation, additional historical research indicates that the identified human remains and casket furnishing likely arc associated with the former location of the Braziel Baptist Church and cemetery complex.
