May They Rest In Peace Forever

In memory of those who lost their lives during construction of the Delaware & Raritan Canal.
From 1830 to 1834, an army of ditch diggers, carpenters and masons - many of whom were Irish immigrants - built the canal. Large numbers perished during the cholera epidemic. It is believed that they were buried along the route of the canal.
