Work at the Orton Plantation Burial Ground, on a narrow sand ridge about 1,300 feet north of the Orton Plantation house, began in 2012. The initial effort included the use of ground penetrating radar to determine if there might be additional graves in the immediate area of the cemetery that had been lost over the years. This work revealed that there were no graves other than the four brick vaults, three brick box tombs, one marble box tomb, and one grave marked with a marble head and footstone.
