Headstone Found

By  | 

An Ardmore family found a World War II soldier's monument while cleaning up their backyard over the weekend. The family had just moved into their home in the 800 block of G Street Southwest when they discovered the tombstone buried under brush in the yard.

They called police and officers immediately started searching for who the stone may belong to.

Because the stone reads "Marshalls Wilder" instead of the common name "Marshall", genealogy experts believe the U.S. military made a mistake when printing the monument, and this was one they meant to throw away.

Police are still investigating. If you have any information on who the monument may belong to, call the Ardmore Police Department at 580-223-1212.
