Text of plaque:

THE EITZEN FAMILY CRYPT
1877
Hermann City Cemetery
HERMANN, MO

Interred herein along the east wall are the mortal remains of Charles D. Eitzen,
his wife, Jane Kehr, along with a number of their children and extended family.
Charles D. Eitzen was notable among the true founding fathers of Hermann.
His leadership and contributions in those early years enabled Hermann
to become the unique and beautiful community it is today.

The tombs are laid out as you see in the diagram below

[location of each grave laid out in floor plan]

This crypt was lovingly reconstructed in 2012 by friends
and descendents of Charles D. Eitzen

History of Mark:
Charles Eitzen’s influence spans from Missouri Rhineland to St. Louis. That is an incredible amount of clout for an early settler, but once you explore his history, you’ll find Eitzen to be a competent and astute decision-maker. By investing his interests in education, the primary industries (in existence and up-and-coming), and in local government, it is easy to recognize that Eitzen deserves a place in Hermann history.
