Forever With Unopened Eye

Memorial arch for Michael (1817-1898) and Catharine (1811-1879) Oberst in Woodlawn Cemetery, 800 Grant Boulevard, Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. Michael was born in Unterabesheim in Baden, Germany. Catherine and he had one daughter, who married a man named John Michel. It looks like a space on this memorial was left for them, but never used. Woodlawn Cemetery was established in 1881 and serves as a quiet, well-maintained resting place for over 30,000 departed residents.
