Three members of the duBignon family were buried near here and according to Harry James, the crypts were placed later to memorialize the long lost remains. The tabby wall was installed later by the club.
The duBignon graves are brick-and-marble tombs.
The slabs were carved by William T. White, a prominent marble cutter from Charleston, South Carolina.
Two are signed “Wm. T. White. Marble Cutter. Ch. So. Ca.” The other is unsigned, but likely White’s work, as well.
The two small headstones at the rear of the cemetery were placed by members of the Jekyll Island Club to mark the final resting places of two hotel employees who drowned on the island in 1912.
