Tombstone Tuesday: J. August Fredrick and Louise (Zastrow) Fredrick

Oakgrove Cemetery Entrance
Manistee, Manistee, Michigan

Johann August Fredrick
Birth:  8 January 1845  Germany
Death:  27 January 1924  Dickson Township, Manistee, Michigan

Louise (Zastrow) Fredrick
Birth:  9 April 1856  Germany
Death:  27 July 1940 Grand Rapids, Kent, Michigan

I am not sure why the "H" was engraved in place of the 'K'.  Some family members believe the surname was pronounced Fredrich, this may be why it is this way on their gravestone.
