Author(s): Dan Sumner Allen IV

Year: 1998

Summary

In response to observations that human remains appeared to be eroding from a location on Elder Island within Woods Reservoir, a project was undertaken to identify and to relocate human remains from this location. The work was done in mid-1998 as a cemetery relocation project. Investigators judged that these remains had been originally interred during a period of time between 1840 and 1900. All human remains and grave furnishings were re-interred in the Elder cemetery.
