Do you have to dig? Can't they scan the ground with radar to look for possible graves?

i beleive foxworth is playing political games myself, there are plenty of people long time residents, like hoyt bellamy, george southerland, the perry family, the nance family, the first mayor of m.b. family, jack thompson, if there was something there surely they would know of it

like the article said, would they have put railroad tracks down way back then when the rumors and talk would have been more prevalent? i don't think so

foxy probably wants quid pro quo

no forked tongue...Mr. Foxworth is playing no games. I've witnessed what this article is about. I'm probably the one that stirred this whole thing up based on what happened last year. But I can assure you that this is a true issue for MB residents. I'm a native with a very long family history of MB. This is a true thing...
The Nance's are buried just a few steps from where my family is buried. I'm sure they know, but it's not something you talk about, ya know!

Why not just re-vitalize both areas? If the graves are that long gone and unable to be located, just have the county/city put up some kind of historical marker noting the "possibility" of old graves. That would be making an effort at least to acknowledge the dead.

Councilman Foxworth is smart too to retain the easements on any land that could potentially be used one day for a mass transit railway. Gas will probably soon be $5/gallon and we need TODAY to go ahead and make a long term plan of attack for mass transportation, whether its funding the bus service fully or building a monorail or a subway system.

Find the graves if possible, if not, just put up a historical marker. Revitalize the areas and retain the easements for future public transportation. It all is real simple.

i can say this several years ago when a certain large family owned company well known in horry county was changening a go cart track to a golf course indian pottery was found . we were told not to say anything to anyone becasue it would gum up the works becasue they didnt want people slowing down the construction while looking for old bones so who knows there could be a acient burial grounds out there

All of these arguments about who will pay for a site assesment are a smokescreen. The state of S.C. has a department that will gladly come in and ascertain the presence of any archaelogical sites.

Horry county local families have been here for hundreds of years. Surely locals in the area would have some knowledge of a graveyards existence. In New England I have seen early American grave yards put to the plow, and the marble head stones used for walkways. Most farmers avoided disturbing them. A few saw no reason not to.
