Mysterious Angelic Stone at Oakland
This beautiful tombstone is found in Block 77 of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. The inscription is in German, so I am guessing this stone honors the memory of a female of German descent, who was born in 1832 or 1833 and passed away in 1872. Her first name may be Annie, but I cannot read her last name. The tombstone was created by Christian Schlenk. The top portion of the tombstone features sculpted cording, and the lovely female face is adorned with flowers.
This mysterious tombstone is close to grave markers of members of the Wilken, Schoepflin, and Krawetzke families, so she may be related to one of these families. If anyone knows the identity of the name on this lovely tombstone, please leave a message in the comments field. Thanks!
