RESTING PLACE — Saint Louis Cemetery No. 2, as seen from the Murphy Building on the downtown health sciences campus of Tulane University, was deeded to the wardens of St. Louis Cathedral, and consecrated for burials in August 1823. Approximately five blocks from the French Quarter, it is the final resting place of several celebrated New Orleans figures including jazz musician Danny Barker, rhythm and blues singer Ernie K-Doe, and Venerable Henriette Delille, a Creole nun who founded the Sisters of the Holy Family order composed of free women of color.
