Francis Brenton was born in Maryland in 1826 or 1827. He appears in the US census as a "mate" on the "Ship St. Nicholas" in Brooklyn, NY in the year 1850.
Ancestry.com makes several relevant documents available:
--a draft registration form showing Francis J. Brenton living on Navy St. in Brooklyn in July 1863 ("subject to do military duty").
--a document recording Brenton's resignation from the Navy, dated June 6, 1865.
--a document recording his widow's pension application, dated March 1 1867, and giving Brenton's last rank as "Ensign" (at variance with the "Capt." on his stone).
Finally, the cemetery staff has confirmed his burial date as March 11, 1866. For some reason, he is not included in the cemetery's online burial database.
