Walking Tour of Green Hill Cemetery

Stop #24 - Matilda Benzel

Matilda Benzel died of typhoid fever.  She was married to August Benzel and they had three small children.

Matilda's tree stump monument features an open book and a little frog.  The book most likely symbolizes a scholar, knowledge, or the Bible.  The frog may depict worldly pleasure or the resurrection.

August Benzel (1868-1932) is buried next Matilda.
