Abstract
The Japanese section of Willow Grove Cemetery in New Brunswick, New Jersey, contains the plots of seven Japanese men and one baby girl buried between 1870 and 1886. This section began with the passing of Taro Kusakabe, a Japanese student from Rutgers College, in 1870. His plot was purchased by the Japanese Consulate on behalf of the Imperial Government. Seven other Japanese citizens who died in the tri-state area over the next 16 years were buried here alongside their fellow countrymen. Some had lived in New Brunswick or attended the Rutgers College Grammar School, although Kusakabe was the only one who had attended Rutgers College.
