Search For Grave of Mormon Elder, Arkansas

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Searching for the grave of a prominent Mormon elder in rural Arkansas using GPR and EM proved to be a challenging project for HGI, since the object of HGI’s search had been murdered and clandestinely buried in a probable all-wooden casket.  The ultimate goal was to locate the body for exhumation and return to Utah for proper burial.  The elder, Parley Pratt, is an ancestor of Mitt Romney, among other prominent Mormons.
