Description 

"In a field, 2 1/2 mi.east, rock slabs laid like a stone wall mark Robert Stockton's grave. Buried where he fell, killed by Indians, 1789. His wounded companion, Beacham Rhodes, went back to Stockton's Station. Returning to site with friends, they found his faithful dog standing guard, "a circle of torn earth all around body, marking rage and disappointment of wolves.""
