|Death: ||Mar. 4, 1827|
Grandson of Benjamin Armitage, Jr.
Some family histories have indicated Caleb died on March 21, 1828. A transcription of some headstones in the Mill Creek Cemetery appears in the July 12, 1935 edition of the Huntingdon Daily News (page 10) and a story in the Huntingdon Daily News from October 23, 1954 (page 6) details the discovery of Caleb's broken headstone in this cemetery by his great-grandson. In both articles the headstone is transcribed as "Caleb Armitage---died March---4---1827---Aged 57 years."
The 1954 article explains that a recent storm in the area had caused a large tree in the cemetery to fall and damage the headstone.
