Angel of Barnett Methodist Church in Warren County

Circa 1876
Jane K Ashley

Marye Lulu Battle...
The Angel of Barnett
Here lies Marye Lulu Battle. She was the daughter of one of the wealthiest men in Warren County, who also donated the land for the church and the cemetery. Marye Lulu was the daughter of Lawrence Sr. and died at the age of 35. We are told her hand carved marble angel was imported from Italy. We think it is one of the most impressive headstones in all of Georgia. Marye Lulu was obviously much loved and sorely missed – what a tribute to her!
