OHCE is working with a volunteer who trains cadaver dogs to locate unmarked graves in Oklahoma County cemeteries. Jan Beattie and the team recently discovered over more than 100 unmarked graves at Benge/Old Pioneer Cemetery located north of Memorial on County Line Rd.
The cemetery had been previously surveyed using dowsing techniques.
The cadaver dog team was also helpful in identifying unmarked graves at the Union Soldiers' Cemetery. The society hopes to learn the identity of the soldiers and have military monuments erected for these soldiers.
For more information about the society and cemetery project go to www.ohcegenealogy.com, email Jan Beattie at email@example.com or call 513-4014.
