The surrounding community thought the kids grew up and flew away, but no.

There were a lot of misconducting going on in that place.

Otherwise;
Why the septic tank?
Maybe "just because" that's how they always did it?

Potters field as it were for orphans?

I don't know, all speculation on my part...trying to make sense of the the unacceptable I suppose

It can happen anywhere:

Up To 2,000 Bodies Now Thought To Be Buried On University of Mississippi Land, Officials Say

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_4780821.html

University of Mississippi officials have updated the body count after a land survey uncovered 800 to 1,000 more graves on property slated to be developed on their medical center campus.

Up to 2,000 unmarked graves have been identified on the land, which is bisected by a roadway, officials said. The remains were discovered using ground-penetrating radar.

"We've always known there were graves on this site, many of them unmarked. It was really a matter of knowing how many and where," University of Mississippi spokesman Jack Mazurak told Mississippi News Now.

Mazurak said that some of the graves came from the old Mississippi Lunatic Asylum, which operated on the grounds between 1855 and 1935. Other graves may be associated with an African American church, and a potter's field for indigent people.

"We recognize that these are people's relatives. We hear all the time, social media, people calling us up saying I had a grandmother who was at the insane asylum," Mazurak told the station. "We recognize there is a direct connection to people today."

The Clarion-Ledger reported that those buried on the plot could include tuberculosis patients, former slaves, and Civil War casualties.

Reburial is an expensive proposition, with university officials estimating the cost at approximately $3,000 per grave -- up to $6 million total.

"We can't afford that," UM medical school dean Dr. James Keeton said, according to USA Today.

Experts think that future additions to the medical center and other buildings on campus may have to be reconsidered in light of the discovery.

About 66 graves were discovered during an archeological dig on the medical center campus last year. A road was constructed after the remains were removed for research.

"It matters to us to be able to exhume these people in a very respectful and ethical manner that’s very standardized,” Molly Zuckerman, assistant professor of anthropology at Mississippi State University said in a UMC release at the time. “The goal is to treat them respectfully and analyze them respectfully.”

The university plans to leave the remaining graves undisturbed.

Fact is, within few generations, full graveyards tend to be forgotten. Overgrown with weed(s) they are then ripped apart for new city centra to be established. It is not uncommon for capitals nowadays to discover graves between only 150-200 years old lying just underneath the cobble stone or pavement.
