Other_Information:

I visited this cemetary about a week ago.. Someone has made an attempt to
restore it.. It is very small, and there are alot of young kids buried there
(one, two years old) who died in the very early 1900s.  Someone was buried
there as recently as 1986 or so.. He was the son parents who were buried
there in the 1930s

Support:

I have no idea... I've searched the internet and San Diego sources and could
find no mention of this cemetary... It seems sadly forgotten.
