Monument to Huntington Beard Crouse and family in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. Huntington Beard Crouse, Sr. (1872-1943) co-founded the Crouse-Hinds Company, which manufactured switchboards, tubular arm knife switches, and arc lights for trolleys. Tragically, Huntington Beard Crouse, Jr. (1911-1951) and his wife, Esther (1913-1951), prematurely ended their own lives in their bedroom after a period of long and painful illness.
Oakwood Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Howard Daniels and opened in 1859. It is a secular Victorian “rural” or “garden” style cemetery where over 60,000 people are interred in 160 wooded acres.
