Sartorius Monument at St. Mary's Cemetery

The monument honoring the Sartorius family at St. Mary's Cemetery in Sandusky is very beautiful. The top portion comes to a peak, as in the roof of a house. On the left and right side of the monument are the Greek symbols for Alpha and Omega, which represent the beginning and the end. According to his death certificate, Louis Charles Sartorius was born in Baden, Germany on December 14, 1830, to Anton and Elizabeth (Halt) Sartorius, and his wife's maiden name was Margaret Young. Louis Charles Sartorius died at the age of 93, on March 4, 1924. 

Mrs. Margaret Young Sartorius died on August 11, 1899, at the age of 55.

Sadly, the son of Louis C. and Margaret Sartorius died on May 18, 1902, at the age of 32. He was taken from this earth too soon.

Many other members of the Sartorius family are buried at the St. Mary's Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio.
