The Clopton Monument

Came across this monument on a recent walk through Flushing Cemetery in Queens County, NY. What struck me immediately was not only its beauty, but its similarity --minus the wings--to the Angel of Grief.  I don't have any information about this statue apart from the family name, but am searching and will post an update if I find out any details. The flower and pink bracelet-like ornamentation makes me think that someone has recently visited.
