This burial contained the remains of a 25-45 year old male with two infants and a child arrayed above his head, and three infants and an adolescent placed beside him. The spatial arrangements of many of the cemetery’s multiple interments hint at family relationships and indicate that, contrary to ethnographic reports from the Texas coast, interment of infants and children was part of the mortuary tradition. Graphic from Jackson et al. 2004, Fig. 3-24.
