The Battersby Monument

On the Battersby monument, an angel leads a young soul towards Heaven. This monument overlooks the curving road where Lizzie Calhoun who was killed in 1877 while on a weekend drive through the Cemetery with friend. The horses drawing the carriage bolted and 19-year old Lizzie was thrown.  She is buried nearby.


  1. Why does Lizzie's grave stone only have her first name? I have been to the site and the stone has no last name or date of birth or death.

  2. Hi Paula
    I love your work it's very interesting, I was wondering if you knew where Jesse Strang(the murderer from the Cherry Hill mansion) was buried.
    Thank you for keeping us informed
