Jacob Sutter, a Native of Switzerland

Jacob Sutter's tombstone is located in Block 67 of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. He was born in Switzerland, and he passed away on September 20, 1878. Though his tombstone inscription states that he died in Sandusky, Ohio, notes on the Oakland Cemetery interment card indicate that Jacob Sutter's remains were brought to Sandusky from Memphis, Tennessee. Jacob Sutter was aged 44 years and one month when he died, and his cause of death was listed as bilious fever. A lovely vase filled with flowers adorns the top of Mr. Sutter's tombstone, and the Odd Fellows symbol is found directly below the sculpted vase.
