That would be "pauper" cemetery -- for the poor. But, not always. My gr gr grdfthr is buried in a pauper cemetery in Galveston, TX. He was there in 1872, on a trip to obtain supplies for his general store, obviously not poor. None of the family was there, so he was buried. Since he died in a yellow-fever epidemic, I assume that is why he was not taken back to his home town to be buried. As may have been for your Almon.
