Just behind the entrance of Ivy Hill Cemetery rests the body of 'America's Unknown Child'. Among the thousands of monuments, memorials and markers, it is arguably the most unforgettable. The original Potter's Field marker sits near the main road. To the right is a bench donated by The Vidocq Society to contemplate the sad fate of this young life lost too soon.

Ever since I heard of you, I keep checking back, to see if maybe DNA testing has come up with a match of a distant relative. I will never forget you!
