This broken headstone marks the grave of a baby boy. Although his name was on the missing piece of headstone, an 1892 inventory of this cemetery published in the New England Historical and Genealogical Society’s Register lists him as R. Castle. The 1880 census of St. Augustine has a Martin Castle, age 36, listed showing his place of birth as Connecticut. His wife, Julia, is from South Carolina and her age is 23. Their daughter, Louisa, is 5 months old.
