Snake Hill Cemetery Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

This memorial has been erected as a tribute to all those men, women and children who were laid to rest in the former Hudson County Burial Ground, also known as Snake Hill Cemetery or Potter’s Field, in Seacaucas, New Jersey. These individuals were buried in the Hudson County Burial Ground because society deemed them poor, medically or mentally unhealthy, criminals, or nameless. This monument stands as a permanent reminder of the 7,767 named individuals and 1,704 unknown souls listed in the burial ledgers from December 1880 to April 1962. We now recognize these people as our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, who were lost but now are found.

In 2003, the remains of 4,569 of these individuals were removed from the Potter’s Field and brought to this spot to be honored and remembered. May this site serve in perpetuity as their final resting place and a sanctuary of peace.
