Ignace Hoff (1836-1902) division 4 Pere-Lachaise

Ignace Hoff, often called "Sergeant Hoff," was a national hero during the siege of Paris in 1870. Sculpture by Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904), buried in division Montparnasse Petit Cemetery. And yes, you're quite right -- Bartholdi was the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty sitting in New York harbor.
