John Daub Monument, Homewood Cemetery

Father Pitt does not know the sculptor of this exceptionally fine angel, probably Gabriel waiting for the Conductor’s signal to come in with his trumpet solo. But thanks to a site in Rhode Island, he does know that the memorial was built from blue Westerly granite; that it was ordered in March of 1902, several months before Mr. Daub died; and that the cost was $8000, which was a fair bit of money.
