I did end up finding out some of this...
I was looking for some burials in Martinique; found one. I'm working on writing a bio, he should be famous (even though I'd never heard of him).
I have some info now on several cemeteries, but no names of persons there interred, nor proof of names (they mostly seem to be named after the town they're in, but I just don't know for sure).
I'll look for the book, that could be a good lead. Thanks!
