A0030-Infant Hobson

It’s hard to read the inscription, but it appears to be an 8 month old infant of the Hobson family.  And that make sense because it’s just next to the other Hobson angel.

(The map links no longer open  directly to the point on the Google map — is the map link at the top of the page and look for the A0030 marker.)

 

A0029-Hobson

This angel has nice crossed hands.

Name

A0028-Lea

This angel has an interesting twisting motion to her body.  She looks like she originally had some sort of sword.  Or maybe staff.  The twisting motion reminds me of how you often see Michael depicted.

A0025-Cabell

What a busty angel, lol!

I need to go back and verify the location of this one — the placemark I created while I was there seems off to me now as I look at the map.

She was an interesting angel.

This has an apocalyptic look to me.  I really like how this image came out!

A0024-Henry..Our Little George…

So….the list expands…first it was stand-alone angels…then including Virgins…and cherubs…and women figures…now I guess I’ve expanded the list to angels engraved on headstones?  I think that way may lie insanity!

Our little George caught my eye as I was walking past!

A0023-Goodman

At first glance, this was not one of my favorite angels…but you know, she has some good angles!  I liked the pics I got out of her.

A0021-Veitch

I’m not entirely sure this one belonged to the Veitch marker or to the Lipscomb marker next to it.  It was off center, like it had fallen over.  I decided it looked like it was placed more with Veitch, so that’s what I went with.

A0020-Van Wyck

The more pictures I took of this little bitty angel, the more I liked her.  Her face is very distinctive, which makes me wonder if sculptors at the time actually made the markers look like the person?

She died when she was not quite 5 years old.

A0018-Davis (Varina)

I’m not a huge fan of the Varina Davis monument because her face looks so empty.  This is in the (Jeff) Davis circle.
