Tombstone Tuesday: Erny Family


I took this photo on a recent trip to St. Michael's Cemetery in the Mount Oliver section of Pittsburgh, PA.  I was there searching for my husband's Jageman ancestors.  Sadly my Jageman's do not have any markers.  But I think their plot is next to the rather large Erny plot.  Which makes sense because from the census I think the two families lived close to each other in the South Side and a Mary Erny married my Phillip Jageman.

This marker struck me because they died so long ago.  Michael in 1870 and Catherine in 1869.  Both were born in the late 1700's in France according to census records.   I do know my Jageman plot was purchased in 1865.  Wanted to remember and honor them on a Tombstone Tuesday and show they are not forgotten.
