Findagrave.com and Billion Graves definitely may not have all marked graves listed. I think Billion Graves has a smartphone app that makes uploading the gravestone photos easy, and adds GPS coordinates, so the cemetery listings on this site tend to be more complete. However, stones are often missed, especially if they're overgrown or have fallen over.

If my quick Ancestry search is accurate, Andrew's son Martin Motto is buried in Immaculate Conception Cemetery, which is promising:

There is a section of Immaculate Conception Cemetery that appears to have not been photographed ("GPS gap" on cemetery map showing grave locations), so maybe Andrew's stone is in that section. Your best bet is to inquire with the parish at the phone # I gave above; the cemetery caretaker may be familiar with the stone.

Good luck!
