Volunteers gather to uncover some of Easton's history

Nearly 200 unmarked graves were recently discovered in the Center Street Cemetery in Easton, but officials say no one knows how they got there or who they belong to.

Volunteers working at the cemetery said there are more questions than answers. They are focusing on what they do know, and what they can gather from what remains in the cemetery.

The president of the local historical society said volunteers have gone to great lengths to clean up the cemetery and uncover some of the mystery surrounding the graves.

The focus will remain on identifying the headstones that are there and removing micro-organisms.

Easton is looking for more volunteers to help clean up some of its other cemeteries.
