Mockup of a 36x24” “Caretaker” poster in an ornate silver frame hanging above a fireplace mantel with a cozy chair to one side.

An angel statue in Savannah's historic Bonaventure Cemetery lovingly reaches out over a grave, as if tending to the dear departed. Oaks draped in Spanish moss and a cross topped with remembrance stones enhance the scene’s Southern Gothic feel.

With its soft, dreamy feel, this poster will add a lovely touch to traditional and romantic home decor styles, including Victorian, shabby chic, cottage, and country.

History

This beloved monument in Savannah’s historic Bonaventure Cemetery (known best for the Bird Girl statue featured on the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) memorializes Marie M. Barclay Taliaferro (1858-1893).

Three of Marie’s children with husband Charles Champe Taliaferro predeceased her and are buried in the same plot. The cross to the left of her monument belongs to son Benjamin, who died in 1889. Katherine and Marie Champe’s graves (not pictured) are next to his.

In 1893, Marie died at age 34. Perhaps this fourth loss was too much for Charles to bear, as he then took their three surviving children to live in Virginia.
