Learn some fascinating underground histories at Union Corners cemetery in Troy. Explore a few odd demises, including pals in life and death, suicide by streetcar, a murder on the farm, and more. Examine unique grave markers that are made of white metal, disappearing marble, and/or written in German. We’ll locate the burying place of a Troy resident who “was a handsome girl before she lost her mind” and hear some intriguing 1908 burial stories.
