Welcome to Lisa's Cemetery Site

(Also referred to as Springhill Parish Cemetery)
Located on the campus of Spring Hill College, behind Viragh Hall
Old Shell Road, Mobile County, Alabama
N 30º41.740'  W 088º08.178'
Surveyed 29 April 2006
updated 04 May 2010

Because Spring Hill College is constructing a parking lot around the cemetery, a GPR study was done by Ronnie Hyer at no cost to the college to show that the parking lot
would not interfere with the cemetery.

Anyone who would like to contribute information would be greatly appreciated.

According to the obituary for Emile De Vendel, his wife Josephine Bancel de Confoulon De Vendel is buried in this cemetery, as well as James West Jr., his son-in-law. James West was the first husband of Emile De Vendel's oldest daughter, Adelaide De Vendel, he died in November of 1843. Adelaide De Vendel then married Paul Chaudron, who died 29 May 1859.  Adelaide De Vendel Chaudron died 14 May 1898 and is buried in the Magnolia Cemetery. I am unsure as to where Paul Chaudron is buried.
