Pioneer Graves Delay Construction

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- Construction of a new gas station in Waterloo was delayed after workers unearthed two pioneer graves from the 1860s.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the remains of an infant brother and sister were removed for reburial elsewhere, so construction of the Hy-Vee gas station will continue.

Leah Rogers with Tallgrass Historians says experts were able to recover the remains of one individual, two gravestones and parts of a coffin.

Rogers says the gravestones contained enough information to locate the descendants of the people buried in the graves. The family is making plans to rebury them elsewhere.

Rogers declined to identify the family.
