Harmony Cemetery
Allen Parish, Louisiana

Submitted by Linda and Ronnie Shinkle on March 27, 2002.

Harmony Cemetery is located on Carpenter Bridge Road.

Directions to cemetery: Going west on Hwy 190 from Kinder towards Leblanc turn right on Cappel Road. This road will dead end. Turn left and go over the bridge. The black top road will take a right but stay straight and go on the gravel road. This road will take a sharp right. Proceed about 10 more miles. There is hardly anything but woods. Eventually there will be a clearing for power lines. Look to the left. The cemetery is situated about a block off the road.
