Anthony Missig, 1871-1926

According to his death record, Anthony V. Missig was born in Sandusky, Ohio on October 2, 1871, to Jacob Missig and his wife, the former Catherina Koch. Jacob was a native of Hesse, Germany and Catherina had been born in Bismark, Ohio. By occupation Anthony Missig was a painter. He died from a cerebral hemorrhage on October 31, 1926.  Anthony Missig was buried at St. Mary’s Cemetery. A rolled scroll with the word Brother adorns his tombstone.

The sides and the back of the stone looks similar to bricks that were set in place one by one.
