Willie Loton was the son of Rev. Jabez and Elizabeth Loton.

A Poem written by Rev. Jabez Loton in memory of his beloved Willie

Willie's Grave -
Earth holds for us one hallowed spot,
So dear, that all besides
Might fade from memory's page forgot,
Yet this would e'er abide.

To it on precious pilgrimage
Our thoughts are daily bound,
Whatever cares our hearts engage,
Whatever scenes surround.

By day, the sunlight's golden bars
Its guard securely keep;
By night, the sympathizing stars
Watch o'er it while we sleep.

The light winds kiss it as they pass,
The birds beside it sing;
And o'er it in the dewy grass,
The little wild-flowers spring.

We love the flowers, but not for this
Hold we the spot so dear;
We love the birds, but not for this
Our hearts are centered here;

Nor that the sweet breeze o'er it sweeps
And plume-like branches wave;
This spot is a sacred treasure keeps,
This spot is Willie's Grave.
