The headstone of Isaiah WATKINS (WADKINS), who was the brother of my maternal 2nd great-grandmother, Ruthann WATKINS SIMPSON.  Isaiah WADKINS (c. 1842 - October 1899) was a member of Company E, 27th United States Colored Infantry Regiment: http://www.lwfaam.net/cw/cwnorth/27usci.htm, and his final resting place was in Sandusky, Ohio, at the Soldiers and Sailors Home, where he died in October, 1899.  The photograph was graciously provided by Phil Piacente, a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (www.raogk.org) volunteer.

Isaiah was born in Guilford County, North Carolina c. 1842, and his mother's name was Sarah WADKINS/WATKINS (c. 1807 - 11/3/1897). He appears to have been married several times, the last one being to Lizzie YOUNG (of West Virginia), on June 02, 1891 in Athens, Ohio.  He had no living children, upon his death.
