Join us at Historic Ramsey House, 2614 Thorn Grove Pike, Knoxville for an intriguing afternoon with Arthur M. Bohanan.
Mr. Bohanan is currently researching and inventing instruments for locating missing and lost graves and determining the gender of the long dead. The device he developed, the "Human Remains Locator," has been used to find over 3,000 lost graves in the last five years. The device is said to respond to magnetic energy left in the body after the decay process.
This fascinating research has led to the verification of an adult female in the Beloved Nancy Ward’s grave and locating the grave of her grandson (Chief Jack Walker) who betrayed his people during the Trail of Tears. Also the grave of Sarah Hawkins Sevier, wife of Captain John Sevier. A lost mass grave was located in Bean Station indicating 15 adult males killed during the Battle of Bean Station in December 1863. The possible location of The Battle of Boyd’s Creek was located with the imprint of 18 adult males in a semi circle in the Boyd’s Creek Community.
Mr. Bohanan’s research is also aiding in the locating of graves at Lebanon in the Fork Church site and Cemetery. The site of the oldest known marked grave in Knox County Tennessee.
