Archaeologist uncovers seven ‘forgotten’ graves
Skeletal remains of eight unknown persons have been uncovered so far by resident archaeologist Dr. Jay Haviser under the footpath next to Mount Pleasant Methodist Cemetery on Front Street.

The remains were in long-forgotten graves from which the headstones must have been washed away by hurricanes or flooding during the early part of the last century, Haviser told The Daily Herald.

The Methodist Church was also unaware of the graves, Head of New Projects Development and Planning Kurt Ruan added.
