This was in Tues, 8 May, Springfield MO News Leader, p. 5B:

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 are buried in the cemetery. If the heirs can't be found, the

state will have to get court permission to move the nine graves in the

plot, in order to finish 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.
