Given how upstet Bonney was during the Marineford War and her comments, I think it would be hard to argue that she didn't have some type of relationship with Whitebeard.
But never mind that...look at this. There was obviously a SECOND visitor to Ace and Whitebeard's graves in the time that Sabo visited Ace's grave and his arrival at Dressrosa...

It could be garp. He and whitebeard kind of respected each other and ace was put in his care by Roger. He saw ace as family and was ready to attack akainu before sengoku restrained him.
Considering he's no longer an active marine (he's an instructor or something), and his tendency to do things his own way even when he was, I think it could be him.
Sabo possibly got in touch with dadan and maybe garp and they decided to pay their respects. I don't see any other likely person. Maybe jinbei but he's was around during the timeskip. He must have visited beforehand or maybe never got info on the location.
I'm thinking the grave site isn't known to the marines or anyone else asides shanks crew and WB crew/allies. If sabo got in touch with shanks and explained he was luffys (adopted) brother, shanks could give him the location and he in turn could have passed it to garp or dadan.
There are many characters that could have visited Whitebeard grave, like Rayleigh, Jinbe, Buggy, Aokiji or even Crocodile.
the second visitor is clearly there for Whitebeard. I would guess its Jimnei or Bonney other than WB piraetes of course. But why would crocodile visit? He despised WB more than others.
I think it's Garp, as we know he loves Ace very much
Bonney connection is probably with Ace . They are around the same age , one sided crush ?
I wanna say Jinbe , Rayleigh or Shanks . I'll go with Shanks since that's his territory , not too many pirates can visit a Yonkou island safely .
I just noticed something else:
Whitebeard's gravestone during the Dressrosa Arc had an entra inscription compared to the time Sabo visited the tombs (5)...
