Another mysterious marker

A military marker in the middle of a Quaker graveyard? That's odd. Perhaps this fellow was a late convert to The Society of Friends, or perhaps he was one of many who left the church to fight for abolition in the Civil War. There was a lot of debate over the ethics of pacifism during that time and the Fallston Meeting House was no exception. You can find more pictures of the church & grounds here.
