Solon A. Laughlin Monument, South Side Cemetery

A marble shaft with a Masonic compass and an open book; there was an inscription on the book, but Father Pitt was not able to read it. We can see enough of the inscription on the base to read that Mr. Laughlin died fairly young in 1869; there is space for another inscription, but we presume the young widow remarried. At any rate, this is a very good example of 1860s design sensibilities.
