Then let the protesters pay for it. If the descendants havent submitted their DNA for matching then what good is it?

Has anybody watched the new TV series "The Watchmen"? This makes me think about the show.

I am torn, this probably went on everywhere and what will be uncovered all over the state(or country). But how much can we afford to pay, because this does come out of taxpayers pockets.
I believe my hubby's grandfather was warden at that prison (no one left to get more info on it however)

If they can find the descendants I would like to see them found for sure.

Well, my position has not changed. That is sacred ground, those people are buried there let them rest in peace. Having said that, if the state is going to exhume them anyway then I don't
see any benefit to dna testing. Most reasonable people would know by now of the plans for their departed loved ones. I still think moving them is wrong.

There may not be descendants, or they can just code them and use DNA matching to locate. They can be reburied and marked with a code without a name until they can find them. Housing them could be tricky.

These were mostly not slaves. I imagine many of the decendants have no idea of any linkage with this black eye in our history. I think if there is an easy opportunity, it should be taken. While it would be sad, it would be worthwhile to provide some history to the decendants.

Records back then are sketchy if at all, so locating relatives may take years. FBISD announced earlier this year that the remains would be reinterred where they were found and that samples for DNA testing would be turned over to the Texas Historical Society. If descendants are located in the future then the remains can be relocated if so desired. The protestors were disrupting a ceremony blessing the land in their honor thereby ensuring as @Yep : stated that this will remain sacred ground. Probably the best outcome for all parties involved. May they rest again in peace.

Some of this just gets out of control. This is definitely a good reason for cremation. No worries down the road.

@Yep : I agree with you here.
