Federolf/Bittenbender Cemetery Results

Laura Sherrod - 2018

GPR and magnetometer surveys were performed at the site to delineate the location of unmarked burials.  Surfacial objects were mapped across the site, and geophysical surveys were performed with a line spacing was 1.5ft.  Ten potential unmarked burials were identified across the site.  These potential burials appeared as hyperbolic reflections which extended a lateral distance of between 3 and 7 ft in the GPR profiles (i.e. crossed multipled parallel GPR profiles).
