 Old Burial Hill, Marblehead, Ma. This may seem strange to some but this is a fascinating place and so peaceful...established in 1638..many people come here to read the stones and in their way pay their respect to those who came before.

Deposited Beneath this Stone the Mortal Part of Mrs. Susanna Jayne, the amiable Wife of Mr. Peter Jayne, who lived Beloved and Died Universally Lamented, on August 8th 1776 in the 45th Year of her Age.  “Precious in the Sight of the Lord is the Death of his Saints.”  Here Sleeps the precious Dust — She Shines above, Whose Form was harmony, whose soul was Love.

Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 1870 census shows Julius, aged 37 and Mary aged 29. The census shows they have several children: Laura, Richard, Oscar and Matilda. The form also shows an Edward Wagner – with an age of 10/12 and Frederica Smith, aged 14.  Julius owned an iron/bridge building company in Milwaukee, which I think is the Wagner Company, begun in 1870, and which still exists today.
