As specified in the Articles of Incorporation of
the Goosport Graveyard Endowment and as further defined by the Board of
Directors, persons to be buried in Goos Cemetery shall be direct descendents of
Mrs. Katrina Moeling (Mrs. Daniel J. Goos), who died in Calcasieu Parish,
Louisiana on March 11, 1884, or persons who, under Louisiana laws for intestate
successions, would be heirs of a descendant of Mrs. Goos. Only the Board of

the Board of Directors if you have any questions or problems.
We call your attention to La. R. S. 8:662, Records of remains to be kept, which
states: “The authority in charge of any premises on which interments or
cremations are made shall keep a record of all remains interred or cremated on
the premises under its charge, in each case stating the name of each deceased
person, date of cremation or interment, and name of the funeral director.”
Therefore, as a condition of burial in Goos Cemetery, we require that the
Funeral Director send a copy of the Death Certificate to the Corporation. Please
send copies to
