There is no spot in the cemetery where you can say for sure that there are unmarked graves. Near the southeast corner of the cleared area is a scattering of muscle shells. It is about grave size but is oriented north-south. If it is the remnant of a shell-covered grave, it is a very old one. There is a depression near the center which is the size of an infant/child burial. There is a clump of iris at one spot.
