Monument to Bernhard (1820-1884) and Caroline (1829-1913) Schickel and their children in Forest Lawn Cemetery, 1411 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, New York. 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.
