About Louis Ernest Mieusset

The Boy in the Boat is on Citron Path and is one of the most beloved memorials at Forest Hills Cemetery. In 1886, while in a small boat near the shore of a pond, Louis Mieusset (1881-1886) noticed his pet rabbit running along the bank. Wishing to bring the rabbit with him, he tried to reach for his pet, but lost his balance and fell out of the boat and drowned. It is this last moment of life that Louise Hellium Mieusset chose to commemorate in her son's last resting place in Forest Hills Cemetery. The marble monument was enclosed in a glass and bronze vitrine-like enclosure that has remarkably preserved it.
