South Side
Brevet Major
E.A. OGDEN
Assistant Quartermaster
died at Fort Riley
Aug. 3d 1855
Aged 44 years

I heard a voice from heaven
saying unto me, Write, Blessed
are the dead which die in the Lord
from henceforth; yea saith the
Spirit, that they may rest from
their labors and their works
do follow them.


North Side
ERECTED
TO THE MEMORY OF
BREVET MAJOR
E.A. OGDEN
THE FOUNDER
OF
FORT RILEY


A disinterested patriot
and generous friend,
a refined gentleman,
a devoted husband and
father and an exemplary
Christian

Few men more respected
and loved in their lives or
more lamented in their death,
as much the victim of duty as
of disease, he collectedly closed
a life in the public service,
distinguished for integrity
and faithfulness.
Erected by his friend
J.O.Sawyer.
