Wise Monument at Brighton Township Cemetery

This beautiful zinc monument, at Brighton Township Cemetery in Lorain County, Ohio honors several members of the Wise family. The panel of the monument,  picture above, has on it the name of Rudolph K. Wise, who died in 1884, and the name of Maggie Wise, the daughter of Rudolph and Maggie Wise, who also died in 1884 at age 10 months and days. This side of the Wise monument features a figure clinging to the cross, clasped hands, and a decorative drape.

Margaret Wise, the wife of Philip Wise, died on February 4, 1881.

Sarah L. Wise, the wife of Rudolph K. Wise, died on March 10, 1880 at the age of 18 years, 8 years, and 7 days.

All the names of this  lovely monument are still legible well over a century after the Wise family members passed away. The Wise monument was made by the Monumental Bronze Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
