Elizabeth Abrell

Birth: 1761
Death: Nov. 4, 1762

Baby Elizabeth Abrell, 11-month old daughter of John and Ann Abrell, was born approximately a month before her father's death in January 1762, and died before the year ended. The gravestone inscription notes that 40-year-old John Abrell's "5" children, "3" boys and "2" girls, are buried with him, but it evidently pre-dates the passing of this 6th child and 3rd daughter.
Great as the widowed Ann Abrell's grief must have been, such heavy losses were not uncommon in past eras, when half of all the children born did not survive to adulthood, and a man of forty was not considered "young".
The Abrells' brown sandstone stele, which features a square-jawed, prominent-chinned soul effigy in its tympanum, appears to be the work of noted Manhattan carver John Zuricher.
