This walls of this decayed burial crypt--dating back to the early 1700s--still stand--with the roof having long ago being lost---the construction material is known in this region as "tabby" which was a mix of sand containg oyster shells to form a primitive but durable and long lasting form of concrete or cement----early ancient native peoples of the coasts of the Carolinas, Georgia and North Florida first used this material, being later used by the Spanish, British and French who came to settle the areas and later--by the colonial Americans. It is now still possible to have a modern version used on construction of homes and commericial buildings--but it is quite expensive even though they use a synthetic material that simulates the concrete/cement mix.
