Johann Heinrich Zellmann Monument, St. John’s Lutheran Cemetery (Spring Hill)

Exceptionally fine lettering on a monument whose style old Pa Pitt will call German Baroque. The epitaph, unfortunately damaged, is a variation of a popular German epitaph found on many tombstones:

Here in this rose-garden
Will I await my wife and children.
…children, do not pass by
….that I am your father.
