Bonnie Dean, Sylvester Leichtman's daughter, recently mentioned to me about the statue of an angel that's in the St. Joseph Cemetery, by the church, in New Hampton. It's at the grave if our great-grandfather Michael Leichtnam (1831-1905) and others of our family.
After tracing the Leichtman ancestry back to the town of Breidenbach, in the Departement of Moselle, and the Province of Lorraine, I read that there's a church cemetery in Breidenbach that has an old monument, dated 1830, that shows the Archangel Michael, in an othewise modernized cemetery. I wonder if that's the reason for the Angel in St. Joseph's Cemetery, and would like to have further information if possible.
