Laura Van Mitchell Kelly
Birth: Nov. 15, 1852
Death: Nov. 29, 1890

This monument to a beloved housewife and mother towers over all others in the Kosciusko City Cemetery. Mr. Kelly so loved his dear departed wife that he had this nearly 20 ft. tall monument erected so that he could view her from his home several blocks away. According to my father, W.C. Fullilove, he and other boys would take their dates to the cemetery at night, telling them, "Mrs. Kelly revolves on her pedestal at midnight." This was always a good way to get the girls to snuggle up close. Kosciusko is in Attala County, MS.
