Funeral monument with a bronze portrait medailoon. The portrait was created by Paul Matzdorf after designs of Alexis' niece, Mrs. von Petersdorff and Franz Boese of Arnstadt. The bronze plate was cast in Friedrichshagen. The Arnstadt sculptor and stonemason Karl Klinghammer carved the inscription.

The Alter Friedhof is no longer a cemetery, but a park with a few funeral monuments.

seiner edlen Gattin
Laetitia schläft hier

im treuen Gedenken setzen dies
heimatliche Mal ihrem Dichter
