Featured Gravestone – Carl Rosche

DSC03856Section:  Baptist

Material:  White Marble

A small stone with severe damage.  Upper third has broken off, the carved lamb is eroded and there is much wear to the edges.  The inscription is eroding, but partly legible.

Inscription:  Carl Rosche geb 15 Dec. 1855 gest 14 Juli 1857

Census records show several Rosch(e) households listed in both Albany and nearby Watervliet, though no child by this name is listed.  This photo at Find A Grave illustrates how quickly this stone has eroded in just a few years.
