Frederick Lorenz Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

This monument probably dates from the 1850s, shortly after Frederick Lorenz died. Many other names were engraved on it, in multiple styles, between then and 1875, when (in spite of room for more names) the last name was cut; but even Catharine’s name was almost certainly cut after the monument was erected. The stone has eroded, making some of the inscriptions hard to read, but with a little work most of them can be puzzled out.
