Bernhard Schickel (1820-1884)

Monument to Bernhard (1820-1884) and Caroline (1829-1913) Schickel and their children. Bernhard and Caroline had two children who died at a young age, and one adopted daughter. From what I can find online, Bernhard was a Free Mason and owned a beer hall in Buffalo. This granite monument, with its three statues, is remarkably well maintained for its age.

 

Forest Lawn Cemetery, at 1411 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, New York, is a Victorian rural cemetery established in 1849. Over 161,000 former residents of the "City of Light" are interred within its 269 acres, including U.S. President Millard Fillmore and the 49 victims of the Colgan Air Flight 3407 crash. True to its name, Forest Lawn is also an important arboretum, with over 3,500 trees spread over its sprawling grounds. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
