It is said that she fell in love with a Gentleman from New Orleans who promised to marry her. He left Louisiana and never returned for Marie.
She was so devistated and heartbroken, that she hung herself from a cypress tree in whe swamps. It is said if you go into the swamps (I am not exactly which ones) near New Orleans, you can here her screaming and crying for her lover.
Some say you can even see her swinging from the tree.
She is buried in a large cemetary in New Orleans.
