This is among the largest cemeteries in the area and in it lie many pioneers of Bryan County and early Georgia. I didn’t have time to photograph much, as rain was intermittent, but I intend to return sometime in the future.
This beautiful sculpture was my favorite.
It adorns the gravesite of Minnie Lee Cox (4 October 1895 – 13 August 1917)
Hands pointing to Heaven are always popular in cemeteries with a lot of Victorian headstones, as symbolism around death was highly stylized during the period. Here are a couple of nice examples I found:
Laura Brannen (27 – February 1874 – 17 June 1883)
Georgia Blitch, Wife of John G. Blitch
(11 February 1830 – 28 July 1867)
