Mrs. Mathilda Pape, Victim of Typhoid Fever

Mathilda Pape was married to Dr. Leopold Pape, an Ohio physician who was born in Germany. Marriage records on file at FamilySearch indicate that Leopold Pape married Mathilda Vaupel on October 18, 1862 in Hamilton County, Ohio. Sadly, Mrs. Mathilda Pape died of typhoid fever in Louisville, Kentucky, on September 18, 1869. She was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. By 1880, Leopold Pape had re-married, and was residing with his wife Elizabeth in Ottawa County, Ohio. An obituary for Mathilda Pape appeared in the September 23, 1869 issue of the Sandusky Register.

It's wonderful how yours is not just a gravestone site. I always like to see what you find behind the stones.
