Brooklyn's Roeder Family

This castle-like mausoleum in Brooklyn's Evergreen Cemetery contains the remains of the Roeder family. Patriarch Frederick Roeder (father of Charles) manufactured trucks in his East New York location. Upon his death, his sons continued the business. His funeral took place at the now defunct Fairchild Chapel on Lefferts Blvd. in Brooklyn.
