Philip Duffy let 57 immigrants be forgotten in a mass grave, then his burial site was forgotten, too. Until now

Duffy’s grave — which was not marked with a tombstone — was recently pinpointed at the cemetery at St. Anne’s Parish, on East Lehigh Avenue and Memphis Street in Port Richmond, thanks to work from the Saint Anne Historical Committee and other researchers.

    Philip Duffy let 57 immigrants be forgotten in a mass grave, then his burial site was forgotten, too. Until now
    Philip Duffy was an Irishman and a railroad contractor will forevermore be linked to Duffy's Cut, a stretch of land just outside Philadelphia where he let 57 Irish immigrants - some of whom were murdered and some of whom died of cholera - be buried in a mass grave in 1832.
