  4. Record search for Jose Gonzales in St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 yielded:
    from The Historic New Orleans Collection and the William Research Center, copy of an index card prepared by The Works Progress Administration project identifying visually the names/dates on tombs in several cemeteries in New Orleans:
    "St. Louis #1. GONZALES, Jose, Native of Canary Isles, Husband of Maria Dias, Native of Galestown (sic), Son of Domingo Gonzales and Maria (---). Died Sept. 24, 1799, Age 42 yrs."
    The WPA's project began in 1938 and once the index cards were completed, they were microfilmed and placed at the New Orleans Public Library. Over the years, other institutions like THNOC obtained microfilm copies. These index cards do not state which square or the location of the tomb. It is possible Jose was interred with a society tomb or with other family members or even friends. The cards do not go into detail.
    A search under the Cabos family name showed there were no mentions of Cabo in St. Louis Cemetery #1 but a Cabos Family in St. Louis Cemetery #1. There were no mentions of Jose, Joseph, or Gonzales Y Cabos in the Cabos family search.
