Note: Buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Fairfield, IA, in Lot SDiv.2-013. His gravestone notes a death year of 1909, which is in error; he died in 1908. Also in error is the initials in the obituaries - his gravestone reads Alvin Franklin CHATTERTON, yet the obits refer to him as 'A. L.' CHATTERTON. Perhaps he went by Al as opposed to Alvin and this was somehow misunderstood to be his initials.
