Finding of a Long
SAVANNAH. Ga.. Mav 20. The find-
ling of the remains of General Nathaniel
. Greene of Revolutionary fame, and
j those of his son, George Washington
t Greene, in an old and abandoned vault
in the former Colonial Cemetery in this
city, was the culmination of a search
that had extended oven more than
three-quarters of a century. So many
efforts had been made to discover the
last resting- place of General Greene
without success, that it was feared that
his bones would never be found, and
that the mystery of the disappearance
of his body would never be solved.
The discovery, which was made last
Monday, was the result of the efforts
of the Society of the Cincinnati of the
; State of Rhode Island. Major Asa Bird
Gardiner of New York, had charge of
the search. The ' City Council of Sa
vannah had made two efforts to find
the grave, but without success. That
was as long ago as 1820, and Savannah
people thought that if the grave could
not be discovered at that time it would
not be found now. The Rhode Island
Society of the Cincinnati decided, how
ever, to make a final effort. Major
Gardiner enlisted the aid of several
Savannah gentlemen in the search.
The committee worked three days
without success. They opened tomb af
ter tomb and vault after vault. The
search was made in vaults in what is
'olonial Park, but was once the
I . nvtlnent cemetery of Savannah. It
ha? not been used for burials for half
a ( ritury. To satisfy the local
committee;, and in response to sugges
tions p i fie in many letters received,
Major ', .--diner had many vaults open
ed, in v ' ich he did not hope to find
any trace of General Greene's body. He
himself baaed his hopes on the old
Jones vault, where interments were
made before and shortly after the Rev
olution. This had been sealed up years
b.-fnre. after the remains of the Jones
family had been taken out and remov
ed to another cemetery. Johnson, in his
life uf Greene, declares that the general
wits buried in this vault, and Major
Gardim-r kept it for the last.
He hi ' t opened last Monday and in
it war fi end the remains of not only
the genei il hut also of his son. The
bodies lay tilde by side.
The find that first gave encour
agement to the searchers was an old
coffin plate upon which the word
"Gre.in-" was searcely decipherable
with the naked eye. Inspired by this
find the searcher! kept on, and son

The city of Tangier, Morooeo, a partial view of -which is shown in the illustration, is
one of the most pictnresqne, most filthy and yet most fascinating places in the world, old
or new. It is nearest to Europe of any African city and yet is as remote in respect to its
usages as any portion of the farther east where the customs of Abraham and Mohammed
prevail and where the unspeakable Turk still holds sway, nntrammeled by European
opinion. The attention of Americans was recently attracted to this old city by the dispatch
'hither of tie- armored cruiser New York for the purpose of taking aboard the United
States consul geiK nil, Mr. Gunnuere, and transporting him to the Atlantic port of Mazagan,
whence he ;:s to n:::ke a perilous journey to the political capital. Morocco City. There at
present- resides the sultan, who owes us a little bill. The trip to Morocco City from either
Tangier or Biazagan is not a pleasure excursion, as the roads are miserable and the country
swarms with brigands. Mr. Gummere must, therefore, have felt relieved at receiving a
countermand of the order to visit the sultan.
long-abandoned tomb there came to
liKht three brass buttons of the period
of the Revolution. General Greene, it
was known, had been interred in a uni
form bearing such buttons.
Further search resulted in the finding
of more evidence. A pair of silk gioves
in an excellent state of preservation
were brought to light with the bones of
hands still in them. Next a skull of
unusual size was found. This, in Ma
jor Gardiner's opinion, was conclusive
evidence, for General Greene was
known to have had a very large head.
Beside the body of the general were
found the bones of a young man. These
are supposed to be the remains of
George Washington Greene, son of
General Greene, who was drowned in
the Savannah River not long after his
father's death.
The bones of both father and son
were placed in boxes and carried to
police headquarters, where they re
mained until Tuesday morning, when
they were placed in separate metal
boxes, which, after being sealed, were
put for safekeeping In a ault of the
Southern Bank of the State of Georgia.
There they will remain until it is decid
ed what to do with them. Major Gardi
ner took the coffin plate to New York
with him to have it chemically treated,
hoping that the lettering on it can be
more prominently brought out.
In view of the prominence .if r.eneral
Greene, it is strange that there has al
ways been the greatest doubt as t
where he was burled. There are two
or three monuments to his memory in
the United States, but until Major
Gardiner had concluded the latest
search, no one knew his last resting

and which still exists.
General Greene lived upon estates
that had been confiscated from Gover
nor Wright, a Tory, and it was believed
'he had been interred in the Wright
vault. Here tradition accounted for
the loss of his body. It was reported
that Mrs. Horsman, the daughter of
Governor Wright, returned to Savan
nah after the Revolution, and finding
General Greene's body in the family
tomb, had it surreptitiously removed
jat night and thrown into some stream
near Savannah. There are many who
believed this story.
Others assert that they had seen
General Greene's grave on Dungeness
Island near the grave of Light Horse
Harry Lee. Major Gardiner does not
' know how General Greene got into the
Jones vault, as the Jones descendants
have no record of his Interment.
Now that the body of General Greene
has been found. Savannah is not likely
to permit his bones to rest in any other
city. There Is a monument to his
memory in Savannah, and the metal
boxes containing the bones will be in
terred probably with fitting ceremonies
under the monument, and a plate re
citing these facts will be placed upon
the shaft.
