Sara Louise Little monument at Crawford Cemetery-Crawford, Georgia

Oglethorpe County

Sara Little (1898-1902) is a sweet Victorian marker that her grieving father had made in her likeness. Supposedly the mother was a seamstress and would fancy clothes as detailed as the ones on the monument.

Every time I visit, there are different items left behind for Sara.

I’ve read one account that the grandparents had a likeness of her painted into their ceiling. It’s not something I believe. If anyone has proof, please share.
