Nice to meet you! I have have not been able to find a source for Royals burial anywhere.

Here is what was the Greene County Library included in their display.

Royal Hazleton was born in 1786 in Rutland County, Vermont. His family moved to Chenango County, New York, where Royal married Mehitable Arms in Cazenovia in 1803. Royal Hazleton enlisted for War of 1812 service at Fenner, Madison County, as a sergeant in Captain James Munger’s Company. They lived for some time before 1820 in Ontario County, New York. By 1820 the Hazletons had relocated to Tippecanoe County, Indiana, and by 1839 had moved to Greene County.

Royal was among a large number of people from Greene County heading for the California gold fields in May 1850. Before he left he wrote a will leaving everything to his wife and $100 to each of his six daughters with instructions to distribute the rest evenly among his ten children. It was fortunate he did. On 6 June 1851, he died on board ship off the coast of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, while attempting to return from California via Panama. His son Thomas was with him.

In Greene County Mehitable applied for the bounty land to which Royal was entitled for his War of 1812 service. By 1856 she moved with some of her children to Iowa. Although some of their children remained in Greene County until their deaths, Some of her children were living in far-reaching locations such as Oregon, California, Texas, and Ohio. Mehitable Arms Hazleton died in Dallas County, Iowa, in 1861.

Have you learned anything else about Royal? Wondering if you have an obit for Alpheus "Hugh" Hazelton?
