Three people are memorialized on this stone: Robert Charlton, Ellen Charlton and James Ducey. What the relationship of James Ducey is to Robert and Ellen I cannot determine.
ROBERT CHARLTON DIED NOV. 15, 1881 AGED 49 YRS
We have to mourn the loss of one, We did our best to save. Beloved on earth, regretted, gone, Remembered in the grave.
ROBERT CHARLETON CO K 12 MICH INF 1833 1880
*Note It seems fairly clear that this Robert Charleton is the same Robert Charlton as on the main stone right next to this one. Even though the last name's spelling is off by a letter and the death year is off by 1 year. This military marker was added in 1990.
