Between the Columbia Canal and Randolph Cemetery.
This cemetery, containing burials of both white and black indigent and poor, was started as the third "potter's field" after the Columbia Public Burying Ground closed in 1856; it was used for over 100 years. From death certificate records, it appears more than 12,000 burials took place. Several graves were moved in the 1950s to the State Penitentiary Cemetery (just to the north) by McCormick Funeral Home when I-126 was widened, and more were moved in the 1980s when railroads were relocated. The rest of what is left is completely overgrown with large trees, except for a small cleared portion a utility company maintains beneath overhead lines.
