The roadside graves are open,
Weathered stones,holding facts,
Who lived and died around
Troy Township area?
When and what dates?
This strange location to bury
deceased in grassy area was
examined and studied by me.
Next to a building for meetings,
where township members walk
right on by, only one street lamp
nearby, another located in parking
lot. The busy north – south Rte. 23
runs by this gravesite, small place
for select 18th century population.
