Geocache Description:

One of the best known legends of New Orleans is that of Marie Laveau, the great Voodoo Queen. Even today her tomb attracts individuals seeking her aid, especially aid in love.

Almost all that we know of Marie Laveau is from oral tradition. She helped nurse the wounded at the Battle of New Orleans, nursed the sick during the Yellow Fever Epidemic of the 1850's. One of her daughters, Marie Glapion, a striking look alike, took over the role of Voodoo Queen after her death.


To ask for Marie Laveau's help in love:

1. mark three X's (XXX) on the tomb. (PLEASE make the X's 'virtual' since this is a 'virtual', you should know that anyone who is caught writing on this or any other grave markers, will be ARRESTED and fined.)

2. knock three times

3. ask for your wish

4. leave an offering at the front of the tomb
