Directions:
As far a location--it's probably in Allen Parish. We turned off La 112
and went in a northerly direction. It could be in Beauregard Parish or
Vernon. It is rather difficult to say. If it is in Allen, it is in the
north-western corner.

UNNAMED CEMETERY ne of Sugartown
We're calling it "Akins Cemetery"

This cemetery is not alphabatized due to size and other considerations
which you will recognize right away.

At this time there is one old timey picket fence gravesite with a tin
roof. The remains of another are still in evidence. There is evidence of
someone having dug with a shovel into 2 of the graves. This was a sad thing
to witness. One of the roofed gravesites has been recently painted with
white paint.

One grave is marked with a picket.
Three graves are marked with rich lighter "stobs".
There probably are more graves whose markers have rotted away.

GARLINGTON, JOSEPH S OCT 13 1829 JUL 23 1890
WEST, MARGARET J JUL 4 1883 SEP 27 1890
GARLINGTON, MARTHA FEB 1 1833 OCT 21 1889
SMITH, SHERROD NOV 8 1811 AUG 17 1887

The following was a hand carved wooden marker from the collapsed
roofed grave:
POTTER, FRANCES COMELIA JAN 4 1885 DEC 8 1886

The following is the gravesite which has been recently painted. The
tombstone is very soft marble and has been worn away a great deal by time
and fingers (like ours, I'm afraid):
