Oakwood Cemetery, Syracuse NY - Bottom reads: In less than one revolving year, She was a Maid a Bride a Corpse. Adorned with every grace & possessing every personal charm & mental excellence. In her spring time she flew to that land where the wings of the Soul are unfurled. And now like a Star, beyond evenings cold dew looks radiently down on the tears of this world. This monument was erected to her memory by her Husband, whom She loved.

The "Bird Girl" statue was sculpted in 1938 by Sylvia Shaw Judson and was purchased by Savannah's Lucy Boyd Trosdal who placed it atop a family gravesite in Bonaventure Cemetery. It stood there for 50 years before Jack Leigh photographed it for the cover of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Made so popular by the book and movie, the statue was moved to the Savannah's Telfair Museum of Art to keep from being destroyed.
