1793 Mar. 4 |
Quinones, Estevan de, notary public
Order of the foreign vicar (Father Theodoro Thirso Henrique Henriquez) that no more bodies are to be buried in the old cemetery but that for the future all burials are to be in the new cemetery outside the city.
Carondelet, Francisco (Luis Hector) Baron de
to Father Theodoro Thirso Henriquez
He is informed the Mme. (______) Brion is to be buried in old cemetery this very morning. He asks that Henriquez give orders immediately that neither this body or any other be given burial in the old cemetery.
Henriquez, Theodoro thirso Henrique
He orders that in future no one is to be buried in the old cemetery under any pretext.
Quinones, Estevan de
On this day he informed Father Joachin de Portillo, O.M.Cap. of the foregoing decree and he stated that he was ignorant of the reason for the decree since no one has been buried in the old cemetery since 1791, when David Hoge was buried there with the approval of Governor (Estevan Miro). (Notes follow stating that Quinones) informed Rev. Tirzo de Peleagonzalo, O.M.Cap., Rev. Luis de Quintanilla, O.M.Cap., Assistant Pastors of the Church of St. Louis, New Orleans.
