Maria Dorothea Gros Grave, Voegtly Cemetery


A popular genre of German grave: the single unit with headstone, footstone, and sides, the whole thing looking very much like a nineteenth-century bedstead. Maria Dorothea Gros was born in the little town of Lorbach in Hessen-Darmstadt, now the German state of Hesse. A translation of the inscription:

HERE GENTLY RESTS IN PEACE
MARIA DOROTHEA
GROS,
SPOUSE OF
JACOB GROS.
BORN AUGUST 24, 1828
IN LORBACH,
HESSEN-DARMSTADT.
DIED SEPTEMBER 27, 1888.
