(catherine) unearthed...
today, the headstone we told you about this week that was discovered buried under a garage in san francisco's laurel heights neighborhood -- was pulled from the ground. (steve) and, as kron four's philippe djegal reports... removing it was no easy task. (philippe) talk about a real struggle...rob lowe/lowes electric- "really tough. i -- i envisioned it being a bit easier." it took two hours, three guys, and an engine hoist to pull this headstone from the ground. it was buried about four and a half feet in the earth. rob lowe, the owner of lowes electric says he was determined to get it out.rob lowe/lowes electric- "i have a great team. they work hard together. get things done and this is the first time i've ever come across one of these." lowe estimates the marble headstone weighs about a ton.
his crew discovered it on tuesday, while upgrading an underground electrical panel. the san francisco medical examiner's office says it was left behind around the start of world war two... when the old laural cemetary in laurel heights was moved to the city of colma. caskets and urns were taken away back then, but some of the headstones were left behind and used as landfill. initially, the homeowners were going to keep the headstone underground... but then had a change of heart.rob lowe/lowes electric- "i got a call from breda last night. she knows, she knows that i, i collect stuff, and, and she knows that it'll go to a good home. (philippe) you live in the north bay -- you're going to keep this as a collector's item, huh? (rob) yeah, i'm going to put it on the property -- probably next to my vineyard. (philippe) why did you want it? (rob) uh, i love old stuff. especially, old history." and, this is certainly a relic. lowe and his crew believe this is a family headstone, since there are several names on it. one of them a man from germany who died in the early 1900s. rob lowe/lowes electric- "1813 was the oldest date on there." the homeowners say this
happens to be the second headstone found on this property in a 30-year span. so, the shock may not be as pronounced if another one is unearthed down the road. in san francisco, philippe djegal, kron four news.
