A Potter's Filed & Unmarked Graves

I'm new to a and registered to add some records related to a county potter's field.  It was used as the county cemetery until the 1950s when a religious order bought the property and established a school.  The order of Catholic Sisters created a cemetery for members of their order on part of the ground.  When I visited I discovered someone had set up a record for the sisters, but I'm interested in documenting the potter's field where up to 200 people were buried in unmarked graves.

QUESTIONS:  Should I create a new cemetery record site for the Potter's Field as its use is different and historical?  also, since those graves were unmarked, is that a problem?  Thanks for any suggestions. 

Here's the site I'm referencing:

I will visit the site tomorrow and take a picture of the one tombstone for all the unmarked graves?  t

@Mike Yes, go ahead and create a new cemetery record site for the Potter's Field. The graves may be unmarked, but if there are records, we can put these in as supporting documents. I can see that there is one monument, this should be placed in the cemetery with the GPS.  Thank you for adding this in. Everyone should be remembered!
