Bochert Monument, West Liberty Cemetery

A monument that probably marks the resting place of one of the pastors of the Mount Washington church to which this cemetery belonged, along with his wife and a brother-in-law. Although some monuments of the same period in this cemetery are in German, the English on this monument suggests that the Mount Washington congregation (unlike many German churches in other neighborhoods) was English-speaking by the turn of the twentieth century.
