the Havens family.

Havens is a large cemetery which has plenty of room to grow. To reach it, go east from Singer on LA 110 to Beehive Road, turn north and go 1.2 miles. You will cross some bridges; before you come to the "T" in the road, you will find
Havens Cemetery at the end of a driveway which turns back to the left (southwest).

This is a real nice country-looking cemetery with lots of shrubbery and big trees---even a pecan tree. There is a picnic table and benches beneath one of the big oaks. The rows are carefully layed out, making graves easy to find. We hope they continue to keep it neat like this.
