wife of Frederick Bartels
died January 17, 1898

Dear Mother, in earth’s
Thorny paths,
How long thy feet have
To find at last this
Peaceful rest,
Safe in the arms of God.

Frederick Bartels

Dear Father, with a
Reverent Hand
This to thy memory given,
While one by one thy
Household band
God reunites in Heaven

Hart Cemetery

An interesting deviation from the typical GAR monument, the one that uses a solitary standing solider with a rifle. Instead, we have this small group of large cannonablls on a short square base.

So should we live that every hour
Should die as dies the natural flower
