      Miscellaneous information: Cemetery documented by John Clauser, of Grave Concerns, in Feb 2008, who reported finding 9 graves. The site was subsequently damaged by construction activities, stabilized, and remains of four graves (others not found) eventually moved on 17 April 2008 to Madison Yates Cemetery F46.2. A marker was erected at the new site to identify the remains of the 4 graves that were moved. In addition to the Lesters, two unmarked graves were found: one, an adult buried in a hand-made coffin (red hair found in the grave), and next to that grave, an infant or young child (glass buttons found in the grave).
