MS Boy Scouts ID Gravesites at Hattiesburg Cemetery

From the Clarion Ledger:

For 40 years, the city of Hattiesburg has had no idea who is buried in the Scott Street Cemetery.

But now the city will be able to help family members looking for the graves of loved ones, thanks to a group of five Boy Scouts.

When 16-year-old Boy Scout Michael French heard about a cemetery that had sank into the ground because of Hurricane Katrina, he thought he might have the beginnings of an Eagle Scout project.
