The Care Gravers logo features The Monti Angel, watching over a graveyard, whose image is from a masterpiece work of art created by Master Stone Carver Joseph Gervasani. This angel can be found today at the Monti gravesite at The River Bend Cemetery in Westerly, Rhode Island.
Joseph was a master Carver who came to the US in April 1901, via Ellis Island. The ship manifest identified him as a sculptor who had begun his apprenticeship 10 years earlier.
He was born 4 Feb 1877 in Biumo Superiore, Milan, Italy where the Gervasini family is still residing many generations later.
By the time of his death, he was one of the best known granite carvers in the eastern United States and his works were located throughout the country.
We are so proud to have Joseph Gervasini included in our family tree. Please enjoy the photos below of Joseph Gervasini and some of his other works .
