A Lot of People Have Ancestors

The Berkeley County Landmarks Commission in West Virginia searched for the grave of Civil War soldier Nimrod Wright for nearly a year, but now they're giving up. Descendant Dennis Wright had hoped to place Nimrod next to his widow, and is upset that the Commission gave up so quickly.

“There we are with Nimrod Evans Wright laying somewhere, rest his soul. His body probably never will be found,” Wright said.

[Chairman Don C.] Wood said the effort to exhume Nimrod was no longer the responsibility of the Landmarks Commission, adding Wright is free to continue the search for his relative on his own.

“A lot of people have ancestors,” Wood said. “He can go and get a permit.” [Link]
