Bringing Robert's story to a close

This week I have been following the story Robert Foster Flatt, half-brother of my 3rd-great-grandmother Nancy Jane Flatt. Today's post brings his story to a close. Robert died on 16 February 1905. His passing was noted in the Springdale News on 24 February 1905:

Henrietta Flatt filed a widow's pension application in July 1928 for Robert's service in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. A digital copy of the application is available through FamilySearch in the Arkansas Confederate Pensions database:
FamilySearch, image 1277.

The application was granted.

Robert was buried in Fairmount Cemetery in Gentry, Benton County, Arkansas. The photo below comes from Robert's Findagrave entry:

Henrietta Flatt died on 2 June 1933 and is also buried in Fairmount Cemetery.
