I don't know how much you have found out about what you've been looking for....I live in Monterey, across the street from Monterey High School.....I've been researching our property history and came across your post....our land description for our property says Broussard Estate....and we own the empty lot next door to our home (we live in what everyone down here calls the "old Rhodes House", who use to be the principal during intergration....anyway, back to the information you were trying to find out....my neighbor on the other side of our empty lot has told me that when they built her home they pushed off the cemetary head stones behind her house, into the Black River, so that information is correct....I do know at one time, a school in Florida was really interested in coming up here and excavating the head stones from the floor of the river, because they are still there.....there is only one head stone left in my neighbors backyard and its of a child, and I don't recall a name being on it.....I really do not understand who would okay PUSHING headstones off in the lake, instead of moving them to a new place.....I'm doing more research on our property, I trying to find out about the landing that was here and the first school that was built on our property also.....thank you and I hope I have confirmed for you or helped in some way.....
