Inscription.
Presented to the West Point Cemetery
in the name of
James Marsland Lawton
son-in-law of
General Robert Anderson
God gives us love. Some thing to love He lends us, but when love is grown to ripeness, that on which it throve falls off, and love is left alone.

James Marsland Lawton
Tender of heart, but firm of word
speaking in deeds and deedless in his tongue, his heart and hand both open and both free.

Eba Anderson Lawton
Who through church and nation gave loyal service to her master Christ

General Robert Anderson
Nor deem that acts heroic wait on chance. The manís whole life preludes the single deed that shall decide if his inheritance be with the sifted few of matchless breed, or with the unmotived herd that only sleep and feed.

Eliza Bavard Anderson
Of southern birth, but loyal to the flag. Daughter of patriots – her undaunted soul, her gracious presence, her brilliant wit tempered by a loving heart made her the help meet for a hero.

Robert Anderson
Died on his twentieth birthday
A brave and noble nature
Gifted, cultured and refined.

Erected
by his widow
Emca Lawton
1895
