Wrapped All in Woe

Monument to the Kibbee family in Albany Rural Cemetery, on Cemetery Avenue off NY State Route 32, in Menands, Albany County, New York. Buried in the shadow of this beautiful statue are Austin S. Kibbee (1822-1907); his two wives, Carrie M. Johnson (1825-1918) and Anna M. Meeker (1828-1878); and their three children. It’s located in Section 30 on Prospect Hill, near Cypress Fountain pond. Austin S. Kibbee owned a lumber company and was president of the Albany House of Shelter.

Designed by Major David Bates Douglass and established in 1841, Albany Rural is a 467-acre National Historic Landmark and the final resting place for over 135,000 people.
