PHOTO 16 - TOMBSTONE OF AARON WILBUR - Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia

Today's tombstone is that of Aaron Wilbur, who was born in Barnhard, Vermont in 1821 and died in Savannah in 1869. I love the large Angel on top of the monument pointing upward and signifying that Mr. Wilbur's soul has ascended to Heaven. The Spanish moss all around Savannah and this cemetery makes for lovely and eerie scenes all around. Yes, this cemetery is the one featured in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." If you are ever in Savannah, a visit to this wonderful cemetery is an absolute must!
