"Joseph Brooks Abrams" is inscribed on the gravestone; however, Irene E. (Putzel) Abrams, the 2nd wife of Joseph Brooks Abrams is shown in Bonaventure Cemetery records as being buried in this cemetery plot without her name on a gravestone. There are no written records for Joseph at Bonaventure Cemetery, but records of a cemetery historian in Brunswick, Glynn Co., GA, where they resided, show that they were both buried in Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Chatham Co., GA.

The other gravestone in this Plot is for Morton Van Buren Haas, Sr. the son-in-law of Joseph and "Tillie" Abrams (married to their daughter Elizabeth Frances Abrams). He is mentioned in the Codicil of Joseph's Will.
