W. T. Denton
MAY 17, 1863
DEC. 8, 1882

A loving son, a brother dear
A faithful friend lies buried here.

This is probably a brother of James Monroe Petty's wife, Sarah Elizabeth Denton. After James' death in 1875, Sarah married Thomas Newton Buchanan. James Monroe Petty was a brother of Celia Jane Petty Caudle and Tennessee Petty Caudle. See the William T. Lawson headstone for a guess at a relationship between the Caudle, Petty, Denton, Buchanan, Lawson families, tenuous though it may be.
