On July 18, 2012 a followup surface reconnaissance was made of the suspected site of the New Orleans Cemetery on Sapelo Island, Georgia. This work supplemented the pedestrian survey made by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Archaeological Field School on June 8, 2012. In the July 21, 2012 report for that earlier effort it was recommended that “any future survey in this [New Orleans Cemetery] area be concentrated along the eastern margin of the suspected cemetery location, which UTC did not thoroughly investigate.” This area was mentioned by Ray Crook in his description of work he had done with local residents Cornelia and Frank Bailey and Stanley Walker to identify the missing cemetery. In a September 25, 2011 email, Crook had added a correction that recommended an area south and east of the UTM coordinate be checked for the presence of unmarked graves. Thus, on July 18 a group consisting of Mryna and Max Crook, Sapelo Island Manager Fred Hay, and the author spent half a day walking the southeastern section adjacent to the suspected site area.
