1804 digging up the grave

In 1804, human remains believed to be Braddock’s were found buried in the roadway about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of Great Meadows by a crew of road workers. The remains were exhumed.

.

This story not vetted here tells of the 1804  digging up of the grave: Page 117 of   Washington’s Expeditions (1753-1754) and Braddock’s Expedition (1755) With history of Tom Fausett, the slayer of General Edward Braddock, by James Hadden, Uniontown PA, published 1910.

A marble monument was erected over the new grave site in 1913 by the Coldstream Guards.

.

Can we compare any sample of the grave and match any residue on the Sash?
