Mausoleum for the Sabey family in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. John Sabey, Sr. (1800-1873) was an Anglo-American hat maker. His son, John Sabey, Jr. (1829–1904) got into trouble when he went bankrupt in 1880 and his creditors accused him of conspiring to commit fraud with his brother and their bookkeeper. He attempted suicide, but survived to the ripe old age of 75.
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.
