Nusser Monument, South Side Cemetery

In memory of Christian (so we interpret “CHRIST.”) Nusser and his wife Barbara. Barbara’s inscription is clearly later and by a different hand, so we conclude that this monument was probably put up shortly after Christian’s death in 1874.

The Benz monument in St. Michael’s Cemetery is identical, but without the pinnacle; perhaps the top was a separate piece.
