Two skeletons, found in the tomb of the former estate Sakharovo near the city of Tver, were investigated. Although fragmentary and lacking skulls, according to age of death and anthropometry they could have belonged to Field Marshal Iosif Vladimirovich Gurko (1828-1901) and his wife Maria Andreevna (Salias de Turnemir) (1838-1906). Further investigations are necessary to locate clavicles of the male skeleton. Fused fracture of one of them can strengthen the idea of the male skeleton belonging to Field Marshal, who broke the clavicle during manoeuvres of 1874.
