Little Susie May's Dove and Anchor

Susie May was born 1 October 1895 to William B. (1861-1938) and Mary Frances Woodruff (1863-1946). She died 26 May 1904 and was laid to rest at Snow Springs Cemetery in Dooly County, Georgia. Her parents joined her many years later.

On the top of little Susie May's tombstone is a dove and anchor. The dove represents purity, peace, and the Holy Ghost. It is written in John 1:32 - And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from Heaven like a dove...


The anchor underneath the dove represents hope. It is written in Hebrews 6:19 -- Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast... The virtue of Hope when artistically sculpted in human form is almost always seen with an anchor.
