Infants Arthur and Violet Curth
These tombstones memorialize two children of Henry and Caroline Curth who died very young. Arthur Curth was buried on January 12, 1895 at the age of three months, and Violet Curth was buried on August 31,1905 at the age of one month. Their stones are located in the North Ridge section of Oakland Cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. Curth went on to live long lives in Sandusky, Ohio, and had three healthy daughters who lived to adulthood. I'm sure that little Arthur and Violet came to their minds many times throughout the years. Henry Curth served as a firefighter for the Sandusky. When he passed away in 1945, three officials from the Sandusky Fire Department were among his pall bearers. Mrs. Curth had predeceased him, having passed away in 1938.
