Discovery of cemetery halts roadwork--Associated Press-Kansas City--
Construction of a new highway in south Kansas City has been halted by the
discovery of a small cemetery dating back to the Civil War era. State
officials are anxious to find any descendants of the Holloway family who
bured in the cemetery. If the heirs can't be found, the state will
get court permission to move the nine graves in the plot, in order to
a new Missouri 150.
Construction workers recently unearthed a marble headstone, dating from
1858, while moving a large section of water pipe.
Archaeologists later found another headstone and evidence of seven other
graves. The site has not been disturbed further.
Please pass this on to other lists.
