During the recent church renovation an archaeology study revealed graves of the lost rectors. These three men were the first three rectors of the church. Until 1988, it was only a locally accepted legend that they were indeed buried under the church. Some tales even said that Union troops disentombed them in search for valuables. Dr. Judy Bense of the University of West Florida Archaeology Institute found evidence that the legned may have some validity. The white marble memorial plaque inlaid into the wooden floor is located in the center of the photograph.
