Many styles of iron coffins were popular in the 19th century New Orleans. Besides the obvious decorative appeal, they were also though to contain disease-an important point in plague-ridden New Orleans. This one is particularly intriguing and may be considered modern mummification for the person is perfectly preserved within! Iron coffins , iron tombs ,iron fences were all a part of our burial styles find out more when you meet me near the graveyard gates!
The earliest of mausoleums in our country began in New Orleans. They were called wall ovens or oven vaults mainly because they resembled the old brick baker’s ovens but soon we realized they acted somewhat like ovens too. The high heat and humidity here raised the temperature within to very high level accelerating decomposition. These factors helped us to “reuse” tombs—sharing them with other family members and in some cases with strangers who had no designated resting place to go. Many cemeteries were enclosed with walls of tombs as in this case of the Odd Fellows Rest. You can see the long row of ovens with a spirit coming to pose for the picture-in this case showing up as an orb.
New Orleans is famous for our above ground burials-but it is a misnomer that we cannot do below ground burials-always have an always will. Though the water table in New Orleans was very high when we settled here and modern measures have pumped us to even more of livable or buriable level this was not the reason wee chose above ground styles. This picture shows above ground burial and below, as well as a streaking orb spirit coming to point out a coping tomb to you. One method of below ground burial is Copings-dig down several feet and then build up a cement or marble enclosing filled with earth to acquire your typical “6 feet under”. In the background are several tombstones with what most think of as normal burials. Photo courtesy of Spellbound Museum, Salem, Mass—taken on Bloody Mary’s Tour.
New Orleans tombs were generally made of brick—a soft brick requiring maintenance of a layer of plaster for it to retain its strength. Nature takes her toll, grave-robbery is an ancient trade but occasionally the homeless have even lent a hand to some tomb problems are open. Much renovation has occurred in the cemeteries since I have done tours and fund raising projects, yet many were so deteriorated prior to these projects that they actually offered an inside look into New Orleans unusual burial procedures- new Orleans graveyards are natural history cemetery museum of sorts.
Brother Dunlop rests in the center mound-tomulous in the Odd Fellows Rest. Here, you may say is still the caretaker there—one of the original designers of the Rest his spot is primary and dedicated as honor to this great man,. During a bit of a tribute to this great past grand master of the Independent order of the Oddfellows many, many orbs came out to help this become the coldest cold spot that night! Photo taken by Michael Norton of Bloody Mary on a Private Ghost Hunt.
Gravestone symbols such as these can be seen individually on tombs across the world-each having layers of meaning to reach into the spiritual side of man. These symbols for contemplation and meditation are shown here beautifully carved in the Lodge tomb—Tuetonia, the German Society tomb in the Oddfellows Rest. Take a closer look so we can find them individually on tombs on tour and in graveyards near you.
