Remarks: Tombstone photo offsite, c2016. We believed Charles Whittle was buried in plot G-58, which is on the northwest edge of the woods. But his gravestone was found down a path above the top-center part of the cemetery map (see below), on or adjacent to nearby Schmanska Park. Charles' gravestone and others were recently rediscovered and cleaned earlier this year by the Old East End Coalition and reported on their Facebook page - go here.
