Elizabeth Quade, 1827-1900
This beautiful monument honoring the memory of Elizabeth Quade, whose life spanned from 1827 to 1900, is found in Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Above the name of Elizabeth is an ornamental wreath which surrounds clasped hands. After performing searches in genealogical databases, I was unable to definitively learn more about the life of Elizabeth. However, her memory has been etched in stone, and it is clear to me that she was dearly loved, as evidenced by the exquisite workmanship seen on her tombstone.
