Suffolk County Potters Field
  Ever wonder where the poor in Suffolk County were buried? Well this is the place. It consists of rows of graves baring only numbers. There are a very small number of grave plaques with names on them. Those buried here were from the Suffolk County Home (poor house) and the Suffolk County Asylum.

A recently renovated count building nearby, still bares the name
"The Suffolk Home" on its doorway. This is where many of the interred lived.
