Kneeling Angel

This large decorative monument in Magnolia Cemetery features ornately carved marble relief elements and a large kneeling angel. It marks the gravesite of Augusta Kennedy Bloodgood (1833-1862), daughter of prominent Mobile landowner Joshua Kennedy and wife of New York railroad magnate Matthias Hildreth Bloodgood. She is buried in the plot with her three children, all of whom died before reaching the age of one.
