A dispute over a tiny cemetery in Pacific Palisades is finally over.

The Marquez Family Cemetery is located near San Lorenzo Street and Entrada Drive. It contains the remains of about 30 early Angelinos, most of them members of the Marquez family of the early 1900s.

Descendents of the family tried to halt construction of a new home just outside the cemetery, arguing that there may be remains there.

The family building the home has now agreed to sell the land in front of the burial ground at a reduced price. The deal will allow for street access to the cemetery.
