Old Irish Bones Murder Mystery in PA

Some came from Donegal, Tyrone and Derry counties.
When the immigrants died in August 1832, Duffy ordered his blacksmith to burn the shanty for sanitary reasons and bury the bodies in the railroad fill, the Watsons say. The men's families were never told of their deaths.
Anguish long ago.

They want to put up a Celtic cross with a proper burial.

This is Galway. Rest in peace.
