Body of Clay

Jane L. Redfield (1827-1899)

Monument to Jane L. Redfield (1827-1899) in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. Her father, Lewis Hamilton Redfield (1792-1882) was a wealthy printer. Jane had six siblings and was never married (that I can determine). This statue was erected by her sister, Margaret Tredwell Redfield Smith.

Oakwood Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Howard Daniels and opened in 1859. It is a secular Victorian “rural” or “garden” style cemetery where over 60,000 people are interred in 160 wooded acres.
