This silver-plated nameplate recovered from the Causten vault belonged to Josephine Shriver, the daughter of Henrietta Causten Shriver and Joseph Shriver, who died from unknown causes in 1847 when she was only 4 years old. On June 11, ancestors of the Shriver family were reinterred in Historic Congressional Cemetery's restored 1835 Causten vault, a historic burial site analyzed by National Museum of Natural History forensic anthropologist Douglas Owsley and a team of researchers.
