Gravestone Inscription: There is no gravestone; a funeral home marker lists her name as “Mrs. Moulton,” which is hand-written.
Note: The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was located next to the original town of Buckskin Joe, now a ghost town. President Theodore Roosevelt approved the land grant for the cemetery to be used by Alma residents on 3/21/1902.

Mrs. G.A. Moulton Dies.
Mrs. Dr. Moulton, wife of Dr. G.A. Moulton of Alma, died after a lingering illness on Monday, the 25th. The lady had been in poor health for several years. Mrs. Moulton, nee Margaretha Walker, was a sister of Attorney General R.F. Walker of Missouri and of Mrs. J.J. Cleary, who died last year at Avon, Eagle county, Colorado.
Mrs. Moulton came to Alma about eighteen years since. Eight years ago, she married Dr. Moulton and with the exception of two years, they resided at Avon, Eagle county, and have lived here since.
Mrs. Moulton was a kind-hearted, benevolent lady, well honored and esteemed by the whole community, and many are her friends who mourn her death. The funeral took place yesterday (Thursday) afternoon at 2 o’clock, the services being held at the Mission Chapel and conducted by Mrs. A.M. Anderson. The remains were interred in Buckskin cemetery.
