Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 8, 1808
Brooklyn
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 29, 1888

Founder of Green-wood Cemetery.

The Pierrepont Family Memorial, which likely dates from the 1840s (Henry Pierrepont purchased Green-Wood lots one through 8 in 1842), is an important Green-Wood piece. It was designed by Richard Upjohn, one of America's first architects, the first president of the American Institute of Architects, and the man who designed Trinity Church (1846) which still stands on Broadway at the head of Wall Street in Manhattan. Upjohn was Green-Wood's architect in its early years–he designed the Receiving Tomb, the Main Gate Arches, and several shelters that are long gone.
