Cindy Torrez's son discovered five five burial headstones in his neighbor's backyard when he was taking out the trash on Thursday. Then another neighbor came forward, saying she found two more in her backyard.
Willard Cook is in charge of the cemetery records for the Great Falls Genealogy Society, and says that the stones look authentic, but are not typical of the era etched on them. He remarked that they look, "...professional. But normally people used monuments back then."
The Genealogy society says there is no indication a cemetery ever existed here, which opens the door to a whole new set of questions: where did these head stones come from, and what could still be lying underneath?
Cook noted, "You would think they would have found something additional."
Can the genealogy society or other genealogists find a bit more information about these people? You can read more at http://www.montanasnewsstation.com/Global/story.asp?S=11460818.
