A significant figure from Forsyth County’s past soon will be returned to his final resting place. While working late last week in the Jacob Scudder family cemetery, located in a northwestern Forsyth subdivision, members of the local historical society made an unexpected discovery — Scudder’s bones. "We were trying to get out the marble and reconstruct the grave site," said Martha McConnell, a member of the society.
