FENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Officials in a community south of Flint are trying to identify a large cement grave marker that’s more than 100 years old.

Fenton Township Clerk Bob Krug tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1NEruH0 ) that the marker reading “HERE LIES AB SMITH 1908” was discovered recently while an engineer and contractor surveyed more than 34 acres of land for fence lines where a large park is planned.

Krug and other township officials have been searching for records in an effort to determine who the marker belongs to and to get in touch with his or her family.

Krug says he’s waiting to see if any other information can be uncovered before using equipment to check the immediate grounds for a grave.
