A municipal worker in the east-central town of Bradshaw has found a gravestone in the town's burn pile.

The York News-Times says the worker was moving brush and branches when he spotted the stone.

Bradshaw Cemetery caretaker Bob Goodridge says that he has no idea where the military-style gravestone came from, but he'd like to return it to its rightful place.

The name on it is Lawrence F. Steenson. Other words on it include U.S. Army and World War I. The date of birth is listed as June 20, 1895, and the date of death as March 31, 1978.

Goodridge says the York County Veterans Service office hasn't turned up any information on the marker yet.
