Corinne Elliott Lawton is buried at Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. She was born into a wealthy family. Story has it that Corinne fell in love with a man beneath her class. When her parents learnt she wanted to marry this man, they arranged for Corinne to marry a wealthy man of Savannah Society. The day before the arranged wedding, despondent and heartbroken, she rode her father’s horse to the banks of the Savannah River, leaped in and drowned herself. Angry and grief stricken, her parents had Corinne buried outside the family plot, then commissioned famous sculptor Benedetto Civiletti from Palermo, Sicily, to create her statue. She is depicted as sitting by a Cross wearing a long gown with one shoulder bare. Her eyes have no pupils and she looks sad and in thought. Her statue faces away from the Lawton family plot, a life size sculpture of Jesus Christ smiles at her back. The more likely story is that Corinne died after a “short illness”. In her mother’s diary there is no mention about an ill-fated love affair, or any shame brought to the family in the wake of her daughter’s death. The position of her monument in relation to that of her family’s is probably due to the fact that her grave was relocated to Bonaventure after the death of her parents. : : . : : #travelwriter #globetrotter #travelgirl #traveltheworld #travellife #traveldeeper #microblog #wandertag #memesdaily #travelling #natgeohub #solotravel #travelgram #instatravel #traveltheworld #traveltips #wanderlust #worldnomads #natgeotravel #sharetravelpics #travelphoto #instacemetery #instagraves #igerssavannah #igersgeorgia #femmetravel #wearetravelgirls #ladiesgoneglobal
