Pioneer Cemetery at Skagway, Alaska
In Memory of
Charles Black
Born in Glasgow
Died Feb. 27, 1913
Aged 28 years
Erected By his Friends of the C.P.R. Coast SS Co.

There is some confusion about this grave - the cemetery database states that Charles James Black, born in March 1889 in Campbell, Petersborough, Ontario, died on a Princess ship on October 18, 1918, and FindaGrave expands that to state that he drowned in the wreck of the C.P.R. steamship Princess Sophia, though she sunk on October 25, 1918.
