Tag: Rudel (Henry and Sophia)

  • Rudel Obelisk, St. Paul’s Cemetery (Mount Oliver)

    This monument was probably put up in about 1880, when Henry and Sophia lost two sons within three days of each other. It continued to accumulate inscriptions until 1956, and all four surfaces of the base are filled. Henry married twice: Sophia died in 1891, and his second wife, Mary, is also remembered here.
