Susannah Abrell
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1759
Death: Jan. 2, 1760

Born circa January 1759, baby Susannah, the daughter of John and Ann Abrell, was just a year old at the time of her death. She is one of six of the couple's young children buried in this plot, including another baby girl, also named Susannah, who had died two years earlier at the age of four months. John Abrell, who died at age 40 in 1762, is also interred here.
The gravestone was probably inscribed at the time of Mr. Abrell's death, as it states that "5" of his children are also interred in the plot. However, after a 6th child, Elizabeth, died several months later, 3 additional lines were inscribed at the bottom of the stone. The work of noted Manhattan carver John Zuricher, the Abrells' brown sandstone stele features a square-jawed, prominent-chinned soul effigy in its tympanum.
