Hazelwood Cemetery

Submitted by Libby Alcorn

Hazelwood Cemetery is located off LA Hwy 171, northeast of Grand Cane, east on Firetower Road, east on Hazelwood Lane on private land owned by the Billy Franklin heirs.  There is no real "entrance" as that was destroyed years ago. I had a fence built around the property 5 years ago to keep the cattle from doing further damage to the headstones.

 

Some of the interments have pictures so click on link to view tombstone.
