In 1990, Joseph Diamond, a professor of anthropology at SUNY New Paltz, was conducting an archaeological survey for the City of Kingston. Using a map, he determined the location of a burial site and walked to the coordinating street. When he arrived at the supposed spot, only backyards lay in front of him. Diamond said a neighbor came outside to inquire, and the strangest thing happened.
“I said, ‘We’re looking for a graveyard.’ And a local resident [Andrew Kirschner] said, ‘Hold on a second,’ and then he ran back inside,” Diamond recalled. “He came out with a box of human remains that he had found underneath his [basement] floor, so that let us know that we were in the right location.”
