1905

On June 8, 1905, during the yellow fever epidemic, three Leeville residents:
Joseph C. Picciola, Camille Rebstock
and Adrien Lefort
Purchased this plot of land from the Martin Family for the Leeville Cemetery Co. for $95. It became a large cemetery, but with each hurricane, graves were demolished and washed away. On September 2, 1905
Joseph C. Picciola
died of yellow fever and was buried where his tomb still stands.
