ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — After being missing for 60 years, the gravesite of former Louisiana Gov. Joseph Walker has been found.
Walker was the 13th governor of Louisiana, serving from 1850 to 1853. KALB-TV reports historians found the gravesite in Alexandria in the central part of the state after searching for the landmark since the 1950s.
The historians who found the gravesite are hoping a historical marker is put up at the site to honor the former governor.
