Riddle Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

This monument seems more appropriate for a husband and wife; but it is for two Riddle men who appear to have been father and son, the son having died in his early twenties, though after his father. Two columns are bound together by a garland; one bears an Ionic capital, and the capital of the other is hewn off. It really does look like the sort of monument a mourning spouse might put up, but perhaps it was in the catalogue and caught somebody’s eye.
