Eppington Plantation Cemetery Receives Ground Radar Investigation

Posted: Updated:

CHESTERFIELD, VA-Over the next two days, scientific experts Dr. William F. Hanna and Pete Petrone will conduct a nondestructive ground-penetrating radar investigation of the Eppington Plantation cemetery, where several members of Thomas and Martha Jefferson's family are buried.

Hanna and Petrone will try and answer questions about the people buried at the Eppington cemetery, as well as determining the cemetery's original size and how it was enclosed.

The objective is to help preserve the cemetery for the next hundred years, and to remember all of the cemetery's occupants and tell their lost stories.
