John Cuevas Signs "Secrets of the Old Biloxi Cemetery"

 

John Cuevas, direct descendant of Juan de Cuevas of Cat Island, signs  Secrets of the Old  Biloxi Cemetery on Thursday, July 29th from 5:00 - 6:00 PM.   

The countryside between Mobile and New Orleans teems with memorials, but few historic spots occasion pause for reflection like the Old Biloxi Cemetery. Burials go back to the eighteenth-century French settlement, when Biloxi was the planned capital of the Louisiana territory. Secrets abound in the old cemetery—not exactly buried, since many prominent inhabitants sealed unsolved mysteries with their final remains in the aboveground tombs developed here. Author John Cuevas explores the fascinating history of the cemetery, including the massive restoration of the iconic resting place of his ancestor Juan de Cuevas of Cat Island, great-grandfather to more than nine thousand Gulf Coast families.

The prolific John Cuevas is also the author of Discovering Cat Island: Photographs and History, Cat Island: The History of a Mississippi Gulf Coast Barrier Island, Growing Up in Gulfport: Boomer Memories from Stone's Ice Cream to Johnny Elmer and the Rockets, and Lost Gulfport.

John Cuevas is the preemininet historian and writer on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He resides in Gulfport.
