Using ground-penetrating radar, the 'Bone Finder' charts 'lost' graves on October Mountain

Post by Newsman »

WASHINGTON — The faded headstones bear the family names of early town settlers: Barnum, Chapel, French and Pease.

In the heart of October Mountain State Forest lies the West Branch Road Cemetery, originally called Chapel Cemetery, a 19th-century burial ground.

Over the years, most of the headstones have vanished, leaving graves of those buried there unmarked. And there is no known map listing the original location of the graves.

Enter the Bone Finder, aka Robert Perry.
