This marble gravestone was located near the road but there was no obvious foundation for it nearby. Furthermore, this gravestone recently appeared at this site according to several local witnesses. Since there are very few marble gravestones seen in the cemetery today, one interpretation of this finding is that someone had found a marble gravestone somewhere in the cemetery and was moving it to remove it and had not been able to complete the job. Predictions of locals were that this gravestone would soon be among the missing. This again gives urgency to the preservation of the information contained in the cemetery since it continues to be degraded.
