Shovels in the Capital Wasteland?

I was just wondering if TTW added any shovels to the Capital Wasteland. I wanted to dig up the grave that starts the "searching for Cheryl" side activity, but TTW requires a shovel for that. And I have yet to see a single shovel. I know they exist in Point Lookout, but I wasn't planning on going there any time soon. And I have a lot more I want to do in the Capital Wasteland before heading to the Mojave. So are there any shovels added to the main FO3 game space, or will I have to travel to one of those two locations?

EDIT: Kind of answered my own question...AFTER making the trip to Point Lookout. :/ In the Hallowed Moors Cemetery church, I found a shovel leaning against the shelves to your left as you're looking at the Wasteland Captive. So there's at least one in the main FO3 world space, and if the TTW team bothered to put one there, I imagine there are a handful of others, too. I just haven't seen them.

IIRC, I placed a few shovels near graveyards with graves that I made "diggable" in TTW. There should be one in a ruined church that usually has Super Mutants and one somewhere in Arlington Cemetery (probably in the basement of Arlington House).
I made these additions to TTW many years ago, so I can't remember much of it, sorry about that.

Thanks for the reply! I'll have to check Arlington House, because I must have missed the shovel. (I killed Plunkett, so I was definitely there.) The church you're talking about sounds like the exact place I mentioned in my edit to my first post. It's definitely a ruined church that Super Mutants are using as a base, and after finding the shovel there, I noticed that there were 3-4 graves in the surrounding graveyard that I could dig up for random loot. A little bit west of Meresti Train Yard, if anyone wants to go looking. (I use the More Map Markers mod, so now that I think on it, I'm not entirely sure that place is marked in the vanilla game.)

If I find any other shovels, I might take notes on where they are, just in case anyone has the same sort of dilemma I did.
