Thanks Gil & Sharon. At the base of this lighthouse is a historical marker that talks about the moran site. After Katrina they were able to recover some bone fragments from a cemetary that before was covered with a building foundation. So after Katrina removed the building .....lol.....they collected, studied what they found from the early 1700's french settlement that died out for lack of food & disease.
