Hi, I'm a reporter with The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans who ran across your comment stream. I'm working on a story about the Thompson family who started the pet cemetery that appears to rest on the former Toca Plantation. I am curious to speak with you about any information you have eabout the history of the property before Grace Thompson purchased it in 1935. My number is 504.352.2552 or my email is bbloch@timespicayune.com. Grace Thompson's daughter, Dorothy Thompson was murdered in 1985 on the property and just this week there was an arrest of a man who police believe killed her.

Anyhow, I'm trying to piece together a history of that parcel of land. Thanks! Ben
