Mark LoRusso, a historian and scientist at the New York State Museum, while an archeological equipment unburied from the cemetery Albany County AlmsHouse (1896-1926) the remains of this woman and so many other people, said: “What we’re seeing is a forgotten group.”
“After the excavation, each body was re-interred in individual caskets and not laid together again. A granite monument marks their mass burial with the inscription: ‘Here lie those once buried in the Albany County Almshouse Cemetery transferred to this site 2002 A.D.’ Additionally, a passage from Walt Whitman’s The Last Invocation is also imprinted: ‘Let me glide noiselessly forth; With the key of softness unlock the locks with a whisper, Set open the doors o soul.’” (1)
This is an homage I make to this unknown woman.
