  • Gormley Monument, Chartiers Cemetery

    A towering shaft that looks a bit like a multi-stage Gothic rocket; it is, surprisingly, identical to the Baum-Roup monument in the Allegheny Cemetery. The Gormley family plot is surrounded by a stone and iron fence, with James Gormley’s name inscribed at the entrance. He died in 1890, and that is probably about the date of this shaft; the Baum-Roup monument is dated 1886 by the Allegheny Cemetery site.
