Certainly Possible It's a Cenotaph

Hal Belcher's efforts to record the history of Fernandina Beach, Florida, included an inventory of Bosque Bello Cemetery.

During his Bosque Bello inventory he found that two Union Civil War soldiers from Pennsylvania had died in Fernandina of natural causes, but there was no record their bodies had been returned home.

"So they put a Yankee monument up for them at Bosque Bello. Now they've got a monument whether they're there or not," he said. [Link]
