Researchers Note: The pension application spells this veteran's surname as Carlton and the "Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers in the Civil War 1861-1865" spells this veteran's surname as Carleton.

Researchers Note: The date of death and age at death of this veteran is taken from his headstone in this cemetery. While it is broken and laying flat on the ground, the death information is still readable. Obviously, this information is at odds with the "Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers in the Civil War 1861-1865" where discharge date occurs after this veteran's death. We, the Researchers, are of the opinion that the headstone represents the correct death information.
