The Deceased (8)

We know very little about the Africans who did not live long enough to be indentured. According to the records of the Board of Health’s marine hospital located on State Island — aka the “pest house”, “quarantine hospital;” or “Lazaretto” — six of the Ganges Africans died there and were provided with a coffin and burial. Costs were billed to the Federal District Marshall, John Hall.[]
