Ferguson-Dennis Cemetery

Project Vernon Parish | Cemeteries

The Ferguson-Dennis Cemetery (know locally as the Leesville Cemetery) is located off of Louisiana Highway 171 North, just before the 171 roundabout and dates to the early 1900s.

The cemetery, still in use today, is prominently located on the north side of Leesville.  While some of the graves show signs of decay and neglect, the cemetery still maintains much of its beauty – there are large trees that shade many of the older family plots.

The cemetery is the home to the final resting place of Sergeant Abe Allen – on the General Pershing’s One Hundred Heroes of WWI.
