Eighteenth Century Burial

The Moran burial site, located at the intersection of Porter Avenue and Highway 90 (north of the Biloxi Lighthouse) has yielded remains of a French colonial settlement and cemetery. Multiple burials of adult males, believed to be former convicts, have been discovered on site. This afternoon, our ELO, Perry Boudreaux photographed the latest find; a male convict whose left hand was missing. Evidence suggests his hand was intentionally severed.
