Police track down where 1915 baby's grave marker belongs
News



With the help of a good Samaritan, Knoxville police managed to track down where a nearly 100-year-old grave marker belongs, shortly after the story aired on the news Tuesday.

The gravestone was discovered at about 6 a.m. Tuesday at a business on Riverview Crossing Drive in east Knoxville.

The headstone is for Gilford Householder who was born on March 30, 1915 and died on May 14, 1915.

A good Samaritan, who has experience researching genealogy and family history, found the baby's death certificate along with more information on the child's death and burial. The person also found out that the headstone belongs in a Seymour cemetery.

Knoxville police said they're waiting for the cemetery to call them back, and then they'll return the market to its rightful resting place.

There's still no word as to how the tombstone ended up at the east Knoxville business.
