The plinth in December 2020.


This small plinth is located roughly 5 or 6 rows west of the central path behind a large tree. Very little of the inscription is legible.  CFHS transcribed the surname as La Tour – which actually fits on the plinth better.  The name in the parish burial record is Laboureau.
