Fuhrmann Stone – St. John the Baptist Cemetery, Johnsburg, Fond du Lac Co., WI

This is the Fuhrmann family stone in St. John the Baptist Cemetery, Johnsburg, Fond du Lac Co., WI. Buried here are my 2nd great grandparents, Anton and Maria Katherine (Michels) Fuhrmann and two of their sons, Peter and John. Anton emigrated from Germany in 1845.

We’ve always appreciated the uniqueness of the stone – a broken piller, symbolizing the deaths of the pillars of the family, forms the top of the stone, with the initials “AF” carved on the pillar’s top.
