Sullivan was the son of Hannah and Ephraim Leighton Jr, aged 11 yrs, 6 months upon his death. He is buried in the family plot with his father, mother, 2 aunts and his grandfather.

Visited the site in 2008 and found the stone on the ground [see photos]. The Dept. of Parks and Cemeteries repaired it in 2008 per our request.



Inscription

Weep not my friends or parents dear,
I am not dead but slumber here.
Dry up those tears and be resigned,
For Jesus he is all divine. [stone is broken, but full transcription was found in a 1961 letter from Morris M. Leighton recounting his visit to the graves]

Gravesite Details Stone was repaired, cleaned and righted by Augusta Dept. of Parks in 2008.
