The grave marker of a War of 1812 veteran has been unearthed in Wheeling during a construction project.
The marker bears the name of Fielder Berry, his wife Elizabeth and one of his sons, George.
Herron says a partial human skeleton also was unearthed. He says the remains and the marker likely aren't related.
The site was a cemetery before the playground opened in 1910.
The grave marker will be installed at Mount Wood Cemetery as a monument to Berry and his family. The skeletal remains will be reinterred at another cemetery.
