A unique find was recently brought to the attention of the Sound Beach Civic Association and Rocky Point Historical Society, as a man working on the bluff in Sound Beach stumbled accross a headstone which dates back to the late 1880's.
Sound Beach Civic President Bea Ruberto and others are hoping community members can help in reading and identifying the names on the headstone.
"The names are not very clear, but the consensus is that the first names are Johann and Friederich and the last name is Grune or Gruner," Ruberto said. "Several people are researching this but have not been able to find anything definitive."
According to Ruberto, Barbara Russell, the Town historian, believes that this is the stone for two children after pouring over the photographs.
