Coffins found in Albany, NY likely from mid-1800's





Federal transportation officials are getting involved after construction workers uncovered old caskets while digging along Mona Terrace--just off Delaware Avenue--in Albany on Tuesday.

Federal officials are involved because federal funds went toward the construction project.

For those living along and just off of Delaware Avenue, they say this isn't the first time they've heard of people buried in their neighborhood.

"Over here somewhere used to be an old burial ground," said Silvia White.

The site is now blocked off by barrels and orange fencing but under the black tarp is where road crews dug into five different caskets early Tuesday. It happened as workers continued renovations along Delaware. The work has since stopped, but the questions are just starting.
