Brady Monument, St. Mary’s Cemetery

A fairly elaborate spire or shaft that looks very much like something a woodworker might design in marble. Peter Brady seems to have married twice, both times to women named Elizabeth. How convenient! No embarrassing mistakes with the second wife. His first wife died in 1861 in her early thirties. Old Pa Pitt was not able to read Peter’s death date. His second wife does not have a marked death date, but she must have outlived her husband by a long time: her name is cut into the base in a completely different style, and the letters are still perfectly legible.
