This beautiful monument in Block 44 of Sandusky’s Oakland Cemetery honors the memory of Mrs. Anne Elizabeth Schmidt. According to her interment card, Mrs. Schmidt died of heart disease in October of 1878 at the age of 75. Though the words on the tombstone are very weathered, Anne’s birth year of 1806 is still legible. A death record for Anne/Anna Schmidt indicates that her parents were Conrad and Anna Shildwachter, and she had been born in Germany. A lovely tree adorns the top of Anne’s grave marker.
