Not far from the entrance to St. Luke Cemetery in Chicago stands a marble statue created in the likeness of Edna Miriam Paul (1897-1907).
The phrase Many Hopes are Buried Here is carved at the base of the monument.
Edna’s picture graces the front.
Parents Charles and Augusta Paul are buried nearby.
According to the 1900 census Edna was the couple’s only child.
The stone is weathered and broken, but remains a touching remembrance of a young life lost.
