Schusler Family Plot, Allegheny Cemetery


There are some forgotten corners of the Allegheny Cemetery that look as though they might have originally been small graveyards later absorbed into the cemetery. The Schusler plot is in one of those corners. The plot is marked by an obelisk, probably erected in 1872; but a monument to an eighteen-year-old daughter (whose statue is sadly mutilated) is scarcely less grand.

Religion filled her soul with peace
Upon a dying bed.
Let faith look up. Let sorrow cease
She lives with Christ o’erhead.
We miss thee from our home, Maggie,
We miss thee from thy place.
A shadow o’er our life is cast,
We miss thy smiling face.
