I've just learned about a man in Eufaula, AL, who works as a "grave dowser"
for a local grave monument company. Apparently, he locates unmarked graves
using techniques similar to those of water-witches. This man also says he
can determine the gender of the located skeleton and divine whether it is an
adult or a child, the direction the skeleton faces, and a variety of other
details. A quick internet search revealed some very detailed sets of
instruction on "corpse-witching". Check this out:
Have any of you dealt with this before? Thanks.
