Born circa November 1751, baby Edward Abrell died the following May. He was the 6-month-old son of John and Ann Abrell, and seems to have had a twin brother named John, whose lifespan is similar and who died shortly before he did. A decade later their father joined them in this plot, which also contains the remains of four other young Abrell children, among them another named Edward, who was born c.1755 and died in 1759.
Sadly, the deaths of so many children in a family was not unusual at the time. Until the advent of the modern era, nearly half the children born did not survive 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.
