History

Photographed in historic Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, this angel sculpture in Neoclassical style is carved on the tombstone of Mary Glover Thurman. 

The angel appears to be patterned after Woodlawn Cemetery’s Kinsley Angel, by famed sculptor Daniel Chester French (best known for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.).

Mary Glover Thurman (1829-1916) moved to Atlanta in 1855 with her husband, a dentist.

The couple, who loved gardening, cultivated a flower garden so impressive that it became known throughout the city.

After her husband’s death, Mary began gifting her flowers to others. Her frequent visits to hospitals to bestow flowers on sick patients earned her the nickname “The Angel of Atlanta.”
