History

This lovely cherub graces the resting place of Thomas Moore Clark, Jr. (1865-1869) in Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery.

Thomas’ epitaph reads:

Our Thomas
Earth has returned the gift which Heaven lent us.

Given that cherubs serve as holy messengers, this epitaph is especially fitting.

Cherubs often appear on children’s graves from the Victorian era, when child mortality rates were high. Diseases like diphtheria, smallpox, and influenza took an especially hard toll.
