|Unknown||Unknown Pile of bricks, near eastern side of cemetery, near cane field.
There are other grave sites which have deteriorated to the point where this is all that remains: depressions in the ground, perhaps a pile of bricks. Identification can only be made if the adjacent plot is marked and in good repair. Family members may know the identity of the apparently abandoned and neglected site nearby. For example, a broken brick tomb next to that of Alexander Gary or one near Ben Hebert. There is also one that is made of concrete with a raised cross made of bricks, located near the road not far from the Patout plot. Or a plain concrete tomb about two feet above ground abutting a tree (there are few trees in the cemetery).
