Headstone Description

Section T Lot 97, 101 1881-01-07; Paper: Philadelphia Inquirer "DEATH OF MR. JOSIAH RIEGEL Mr. Josiah Riegel, the head of the well-known house of Riegel, Scott & Co., dry goods importers and jobbers, No. 333 Market street, died about one o'clock yesterday. Mr. Riegel was born at Hellertown, Northampton county, PA, in 1830, and came to this [city] about thirty-one years ago, entering the employ of Riegel & Bro., dry goods jobbers and retailers on Second street, near Callowhill. About the year 1851 he became connected with the house of Sieger, Lamb & Co., on North Third street, and was admitted as a partner in the house of Riegel, Baird & Co., on North Third street, their successors, in 1858. From that time to the present he has been identified with the dry goods jobbing business of this city, and has been well and favorably known for his ability, integrity and energy, both as a salesman and as a merchant. On Tuesday last he was attacked with apoplexy at his place of business, and after lingering for two days passed away. He leaves a widow and two children to mourn his loss. He will be very much missed in mercantile circles, and his sudden demise universally regretted by those with whom he was accustomed to transact business. As if by a strange coincidence, Mr. Riegel was taken ill on the first annivesrary of his brother Jacob's death. The trade of the house of which Mr. Reigel was the head amounts to over $3,000,000 annually, and passed through all the panics unscathed. To show Mr. Reigel's tireless energy and application to business it is stated that during the busy seasons of spring and fall he would be at the hotels as early as six o'clock in the morning to meet his customers and take them to his place of business. Mr. Reigel was a director in the Saucon Iron Company, and also was interested in the True Blue Slate Company, in Northampton county, Pa. The funeral will take place on Monday, at twelve o'clock/"

George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018.

Ruth Riegel (Murray) was 57 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
