On October 15, 2016, Abington Friends Meeting commemorated the people interred in unmarked graves in our burial ground, especially those of African descent, with a bronze plaque erected at its entrance. We gathered for a Memorial Meeting for Worship as a tribute to the long-forgotten people of African descent who are buried under our care and stewardship.
