Hamilton's Grave: Jersey Shore Cemetery, Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania (July 2005)
The grave of Charles M. Hamilton is the smaller of the two obelisks. The larger is the marker of Charles's younger brother, John L., killed in action at Petersburg one week before Lee's surrender. The small rounded markers in front of the obelisks in the picture on the left are the graves of John (left) and Hannah (right) Hamilton, the parents of Charles and John.
