Gravestone Inscription: There is no gravestone; a Funeral Home Marker bears the hand-written name of Dr. Moulton.
Note: The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was 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, Patent No. 1638.

P.H. Killduf has been appointed administrator of the estate of the late Dr. G.A. Moulton.
Dr. G.A. Moulton, who died last Thursday, May 27, was a native of Illinois, being born at Galesburg in 1860. He studied at the celebrated Rush Medical college in Chicago. After graduating, he practiced first in Kansas, coming later to Colorado and locating in Denver. About 13 years ago he came to Alma where, with the exception of two years which he spent at Eagle, Eagle County, has resided here since. Dr. Moulton was a widower; his wife, nee Walker, preceding him two years since to the grave.
Dr. Moulton was elected Coroner of Park County one term and served with honor. He was also one of the delegates to the Populist convention at St. Louis. As a physician, Dr. Moulton ranked high in the medical fraternity of the state and Colorado loses one if its most honored members.
Funeral service was held at the residence. The choir, composed of Mrs. Cummings and Miss Louisa Gumaer, sang the beautiful hymn, “Nearer My God to Thee.” Judge Neuhaus delivered the funeral address. He eulogized in well-chosen words the doctor as a man and citizen, as a friend to the needy and afflicted, paying high tribute to his character and general standing in the community. At the conclusion of the address, the choir sang “Rock of Ages.”
The remains were escorted by a large cortege of friends to the Alma cemetery and laid beside his wife. Dr. Moulton leaves his aged mother, a brother, Jas. Moulton at Douglas, Arizona and a sister at Dallas, Texas, to mourn his loss.
