The Coffin Plate Of John F Rebstock

This coffin plate for John F Rebstock is fairly standard for the time. It is constructed from silver plated cast metal. Before about 1890 most coffin plates were constructed from thin plate metal.

I went and had a look for John in the 1900 United States Federal Census.
