Possible Location of the "Lost" Cemetery, Bayou St. John

These photographs were taken by the WPA around 1938 when they were constructing a bridge at the intersection of Moss St. and Jefferson Davis Pkwy. Moss St. and Jefferson Davis Parkway converge in the area where Bayou St. John intersects with the Carondelet Canal...So, I'm thinking the cemetery was somewhere very near here, if not on this very spot. This area today is completely developed by businesses and homes.
Note: these photographs can be found at NOPL or at nutrias.org
