Based on Mr. Sensat's comment I changed the name to reflect the one on the 1948 topo. In addition, the pin is on the border of two parishes, neither of which is Evangeline. Section number is greater than 36 due to the unusual surveying in this area.

Des Cannes Bayou Bridge

This info is incorret. That bridge crosses Bayou Nepiqiquis. Bridge is known as Janki Bridge. Hwy 100 which is nearby about 8 miles NE does cross Des Cannes.

Just a note from stories of the past, there was a hand pull ferry on Bayou Des Cannes between Crochet Rd and Fabacher Rd which was the main road which linked Lake Charles with Opelousas (then Parish Seat}
