Sheraden Monument, Chartiers Cemetery

A towering monolith marks the Sheraden family plot in Chartiers Cemetery. William Sheraden was the founder of the Sheraden borough that later became the Sheraden neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Trinity Lutheran Church has a page on the history of Sheraden; it gives the date of William’s death as 1901 instead of 1900, but lists enough relatives for us to be sure this is the same William Sheraden.
