Saint Luke Baptist Cemetery listed in Bienville Parish:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=694922

Is actually located in Claiborne Parish:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2544475

I would say just move the memorials and then delete Saint Luke Baptist Cemetery from Bienville Parish. The Saint Luke Church & cemetery
is located where the mailing address is Arcadia, LA and a lot of the burials are taken care by funeral homes there.
