In late October and early November, 2014, GeoModel, Inc. conducted a ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey to locate gravesites in two (2) cemeteries in Cleveland, Texas. Only a few older sections of one of the cemeteries were surveyed; whereas, the entire area of the other, 4-acre cemetery was surveyed with GPR.
In the 4-acre cemetery, there were many missing headstones. GeoModel, Inc. found large areas where numerous gravesites had no headstones or any markings indicating that gravesites existed there. GeoModel, Inc. used paint or flags on the ground surface to delineate the unmarked graves and to confirm the exact locations of the marked graves.
