Four years ago, issued a report on the cemetery located in Nestor off Saturn Boulevard, near Coronado Avenue. The report indicated that the 20 found gravestones were "unmarked," "broken," "toppled," "disintegrating," "buried," and "vandalized."

The reporter wrote: "I visited this cemetery about a week ago. Someone has made an attempt to restore it. It is very small, and there are a lot 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 of parents who were buried there in the 1930s.... I've searched the internet and San Diego sources and could find no mention of this cemetery.... It seems sadly forgotten."
