Volunteers say they've discovered more graves at a Montgomery cemetery.

The volunteers are using ground-penetrating radar in hopes of finding the true boundaries of Lincoln Cemetery and a total count of everyone buried there.

Lincoln Cemetery was originally designed to hold around 700 burials, but so far 7,000 bodies have been discovered and now a few more graves can be added to the list.

Members of the Lincoln Cemetery Authority say grant money for the project has been depleted.
