INSCRIPTIONS IN THE OLD PROTESTANT GRAVEYARD AT ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA.
Vol. XLVII (1893), Page 300
Communicated by B. Frank Leeds, Esq.

This graveyard is just without the old north gate of the town. It has for its southern boundary the
town ditch or moat, eastwardly the shell road, a continuation of George St. northward, and north
and west the grounds of the large (Saint) San Marco Hotel. Two lots outside (west side of its
north-west corner) of the nearly square area of the yard proper are burial lots (one or both) for
Jews, but containing no inscribed stones. The fence of the graveyard proper is of posts and
boards the entrance gate on its east side being mainly of wrought iron and upheld by cement
posts. A hedge, additionally, of low cedars runs along and inside its east line. Scattered about
within are various planted trees, the cedar predominating, some of which are hereafter men-
tioned as occuring close to graves. The yard and its contents are in very fair condition, though I
am told without a care taken.

The list following, of the occupants of graves covered with inscribed stones, is complete. I have
also noticed the graves indicated by fencing, or uninscribed boards, or stones, whenever such
occur. The rows are somewhat irregular - being out of a straight line so that they allow of the in-
sertion of half rows. A good many of the graves are without monuments, some of which must
contain several bodies, if one may guess from the quite long list of interments between 1877
and 1884. During the latter year, the yard was finally closed as a place of interment. The previ-
ous list, or lists, of burials, I am told by Mr. G. T. Bunting, a resident of the town, was, or were,
destroyed during the war. Many colored people, their graves unmarked with an exception or
two, lie in this yard.

Since this yard was closed Protestants have buried in the cemetery on the outskirts of New, or
West, St. Augustine. The old Catholic cemetery on Cordova St. within the ancient town lines is
perhaps about the size of the old Protestant yard, but how it can contain the dead of 300 years,
almost or quite, without placing them from 2 to 10 deep, I can hardly see. The new Catholic
cemetery is outside the old gate, some distance, and to the east of the shell road. Near the
Army Barracks (on St. Francis St.), south end of town, and connected therewith, a walled grave-
yard holds the victims of the Dade massacre, and a number of soldiers that have died at this
post. An old graveyard, supposed to have been used by the Indians, perhaps those converted
by the Catholic missionaries, is now covered by the Lynn House, south side of the Plaza. This
ran out into the street, bounding the plaza on the south side.

In making the following list I began copying at the south end of the rows and worked north-
wardly. The commencement of Row 1 is in the yard's south-east corner. The work of copying
was done early spring, 1892, and was reviewed February, 1893.
