Laban Llewellyn Tomkies was born 13 January 1829 and died 29 June 1889 in Desoto Parish Louisiana and is buried in Old Hazelwood Cemetery in Desoto Parish Louisiana. Old Hazelwood Cemetery is 159 years old and is in bad shape. I would like to hear from any descendants of Laban L Tomkies who might be interested in joining with other descendants in an effort to save this old cemetery. Laban L Tomkies, Oleon Tomkies, and Hopkins Tomkies are buried in this cemetery. Ella V Goodwyn was the wife of Laban L Tomkies. Her parents Jesse H Goodwyn and Sarah Thomas Goodwyn are also buried in Old Hazelwood Cemetery. There is a cemetery book written in 2007" The Families in Old Hazelwood" which had a trascription of the names of the people who are buried in Old Hazelwood Cemetery, information and pictures of some of the families, a history of the cemetery, and pictures of the cemetery.
