Laura Kelly Monument, Kosciusko MSMonday, August 15, 2005
This pic of the Laura Kelly monument is from the Kosciusko City Cemetery in Kosciusko, MS.
Laura Kelly died in 1890, and her husband ordered a statue to be made in her likeness (incl. dressed in her wedding gown) from a sculptor in Italy. The Kelly's home was under construction when she died, so Mr. Kelly instructed the builder to add a third story to the home so that he would be able to look out the window and see his wife's monument.
