This week on the Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay blog, a look at the life of Jacob Hornig, a German immigrant who worked as a marblecutter in Sandusky in the 1870s — his work including the cutting of tombstones.

"In 1900, Jacob and Catherine were living in Vermilion, but Jacob listed his occupation as farmer at this time. The children still at home were: George, age 22; and Carl, age 18. Jacob said he had been living in the U.S. for 41 years, and Catherine had been living in the U.S. for 52 years."
