Regarding José Martí. The marker is currently missing and presumed stolen. The marker was extremely interesting, as it was one of few from the pre-revolutionary period of Cuba. The marker was given by the Cuban President Grau San Martín, who last served in 1948. The secondary marker was given by a local Masonic lodge.
The text of the markers was taken from other photos available on the intranet but where it was not possible to ascertain the possibility of including them here.
