County keeps the cemetery mowed but unidentifiable to the uninformed general public. Also rumored that the county has not interest in expending funds on the cemetery, because of the lack of gravemarkers. Last reported burial in the county cemetery is 1964.
     Commonly, sick jail and prison inmates are brought to the county hospitals, so it is possible that some inmates from the county jail or San Quentin prison may have been interred in the Marin County Hospital Cemetery along with indigent people.
