Tombstone Tuesday: Lillian Russell Moore


Lillian Russell Moore was a famous New York actress back in the early 1900's.  She is one of many "famous" people buried in Allegheny Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA.  Her mausoleum is quite beautiful.  The inscription over the door reads "The World Is Better For Her Having Lived".

Here is a close up of the inscription.

She is buried with her fourth husband, Alexander Penn Moore, a Pittsburgh newspaper publisher.  This mausoleum is in the section known as Millionaire's Alley in the cemetery.
