John Abrell
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1751
Death: Apr., 1752

Born circa November 1751, baby John was the 4-month-old son of John and Ann Abrell, and seems to have been the twin brother of 6-month-old baby Edward, who died shortly afterwards. The infants predeceased their father by a decade, who was buried here after his death at age 40 in 1762. Also interred in this plot are the remains of four of their siblings: another named Edward, two sisters named Susannah, and one named Elizabeth---all very young children, ranging in age from 10 days to 4 years.
Sadly, the loss of so many of children within one nuclear family was once as commonplace as it is tragic. Prior to the modern era, only half of the babies born survived to adulthood.
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.
