There are 19 more graves marked with cement crosses and bridal wreaths. It is believed that Eli Robertson is buried next to his son, David. It is believed that several of these other graves belong to the children of Eli Robertson and his wife, Elizabeth Webb. These include: Calvin Robertson (b. 1822); Mary Robertson (b. 1828); Martha Anne Robertson (b. 1819); Margaret Anne Robertson (b. 1826); Priscilla Anne Robertson(b.1829). The last three children all died within 12 days of each other in September 1829 probably of a contagious disease. We would appreciate hearing from anyone who who has information regarding the remaining unmarked graves or knows the names of the people buried there.
