Moritz and Mary Link Monument at St. Mary's Cemetery

This lovely monument honoring the memory of Moritz and Mary Link was erected at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio. Moritz Link, also known as Morris Link, was a native of Baden, Germany. He came to the U.S. in 1851. After settling in Sandusky, Ohio, Morris Link became a manufacturer of wine. Later he became a foreman in the Mad River Railroad warehouse. Another business venture that Mr. Link undertook was the building of the Link Block at the corner of West Washington and McDonough Street. Link's Hall, on the upper level of the structure was home to meetings, concerts, and wrestling matches for many years. Moritz/Morris Link died on March 3, 1890. Mrs. Mary Link died on June 22, 1910. Their memory lives on through many descendants still living in northern Ohio.

The cross atop the Link monument resembles portions of a tree.
