    Thanks for that Carl, and look how long it takes to find them. If this is Clint Brown, he went missing in the 60's and it was suspected he was put in a well.

    My parents live just outside Dresden on Kent Bridge Rd.
    I thought it would be bigger news, but my parents seem to think the police have been given an indication on who it may be, based on archival missing persons cases.
    Also remember that Dresden Cemetary runs the bank of the river, and a couple years ago there was terrible erosion that caused numerous caskets/grave markers to be unearthed and swallowed by the river. A new retaining wall was installed. Unsure if all were recovered, so maybe that is why there isn't more interest?
    I also wonder if this person is linked to the Underground Railroad, and/or the hiding of slaves during that awful period of history. Many black people sought refuge in Dresden area (Uncle Tom's Cabin is located in Dresden).
    I will ask our family friend, who lives on Croton Line, and whose house backs the cemetary.

    If anyone has specific questions regarding the area, please let me know and I will ask my Dad who has lived there for 68 years.
