In St Johns' Parish Church cemetery, visitors can view the tomb of Lieutenant Ferdinando Paleologus who died in 1678. He was said to be a direct descendant of the Byzantine Emperors. The tomb of Ferdinando Paleologus conjures up tales of mystery. The vault where his coffin originally lay was accidentally uncovered by a hurricane in 1831, and when the lead coffin was opened, people found curiously large skeletal remains imbedded in quicklime inside. -Nadia Ali
