The KVEW TV web site has an interesting, although short, article about efforts by a coroner to unite unclaimed remains with as many families as possible. The Walla Walla County Coroner obtained more than 300 cremated remains, all of which have been unclaimed. Ten of the remains have already been identified as soldiers who were honorably discharged, and an honor guard conducted a proper burial of those soldiers.
The Coroner's office is looking for more relatives. You can read more, including a full list of the names of all unclaimed remains, at http://goo.gl/mOazn.
