I visited the cemetery at Trinity Church of Christ in Manchester, Md., for a house history project I’m working on (shhh! It’s a secret!). I can’t post anything about the subjects of that project yet, but I did take some pics of another tombstone at the cemetery, which literally towered over the rest of the stones there.
The monument pictured above is for the BRUMMELs.
To the memory of
died March 8, 1879,
aged 77 years,
by her only child
“She is not dead but sleepeth.”
I don’t know anything about the major or the rest of his family except this tidbit gleaned from Google. He may also have written songs under the name August O. Brummel.
