Schoenberger Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

The top has broken off this ornate Gothic monument, and the fallen cap is just leaning against the base right now. The statue inside is also headless. John and Margaret Schoenberger were neighbors of the Allegheny Cemetery, and after Margaret died John sold their estate to become part of the cemetery grounds. This monument probably dates from Margaret’s death in 1876.
