In the ground before you rest the remains of 164 people who were removed from the Third Street Burial Ground in Troy, NY in 1875 to make way for a new City Hall. No gravestones ever marked this spot as they were probably broken during the disinterments.

Originally donated to the city by Jacob Vanderheyden in 1796, The Third Street Burial Ground was located on the south east corner of State Street, a corner now known as Barker Park. It was adjacent to the First Particular Baptist Church, the church of "Uncle Sam" Wilson and his family.

The Friends of Oakwood, in conjunction with the Troy Cemetery Association have erected this plaque to recognize the men, women, who have lain here, unacknowledged, since 1875. The names of those interred are available in Oakwood's burial records.
