Texas Historical Commission
In April, May and June of 1980, Prewitt and Associates, Inc. conducted archeological monitoring and excavations in specified areas of 41WB22, a late nineteenth and early twentieth century cemetery in the City of Laredo, Webb County, Texas. These investigations were directly solely towards locating and removing graves exposed by pit and trench excavation activities at the construction site of the Laredo Transit Operating Facilities. The result was the accumulation of data regarding the disinterment of twenty-two graves which contained twenty-three individuals; six of these were partially or totally removed during backhoe excavations prior to the initiation of archeological monitoring, and seventeen were systematically exposed, recorded and removed after the commencement of monitoring. An additional thirteen grave outlines were detected and their locations recorded but their contents were not exhumed.
