NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Local archeologists and neighbors spent four hours digging up a Nashville family's front yard this weekend.
They were hoping to find the remains of the only man ever killed in a duel with Andrew Jackson.
But the final resting place of Charles Dickinson, who died in 1806, is still a mystery.
Archaeologist Larry McKee said not finding the body was disappointing because he thought he had accurate information about where to dig.
Some people believe Dickinson was buried on the plantation while others think his body was returned to his home state of Maryland.
McKee says he hasn't given up on the site. He hopes to return next month for more digging.
