In April 2009, a group of family and friends gathered at the burial site of Robert E. Cole and his mother, Eliza Cole, to rededicate their grave. The Cole family had restored both headstones by adding a base that provided details of Robert's military service, which was not on the original headstone. Stanford's Battery fired a 3-shot volley salute from their original Civil War cannon.
