Search Lacovia Tombs:

"At Lacovia, on the main road from Santa Cruz to Black River, precisely at its junction with the road from Lacovia to Balaclava, there are two tombs, side by side ; the space between being only six feet. One, built of large squares of stones or rock commonly used for building purposes, is in the last stages of decay and ruin, and without any slab or inscription. The other is a high brick tomb, with a massive white marble slab"(1) that bears identification. The original tombs are now repaired with concrete.(2) The burials apparently date from September, 1738.

This neighborhood of Lacovia is also locally called "Lacovia Tombstone" or simply "Tombstone".
