RE: William Joseph Elder correction
I would suggest that you connect all three of his wives to his Elder Mill stone, and the owner of the Watkinsville memorial be allowed to do the same with the Watkinsville grave. You and the other owner could agree to have you clearly state on your memorial that he is buried at Elder Mill. The Watkinsville memorial owner would then firmly state that he is not buried in Watkinsville, but rather it is a stone to his memory instead than his body, which instead is interred at Elder Mill.

Ultimately, I understand your concern about his actual burial site, but he does literally have two physical stones to his memory, and each should reflect his full life which includes his many children and three wives. If you are clear where his body is, I do not see his descendants becoming confused. As it stands, it appears there are two separate William Joseph Elders when there is only one. This change is intended to reduce confusion on the technical issue of his having two gravestones.

RE: William Joseph Elder correction
I'm confused what's happening here and why you are repeating the same thing that I am agreeing with (that he does have a stone in Elder Mill). I am merely informing you that William Joseph Elder has *two* gravestones and the other one is in Watkinsville. Each stone is with his wives, and thus they are in two different locations because only two of the wives are in Elder Mill and the third and last is in Watkinsville.

He should be connected to all three wives on each of his gravestones, because while they are different stones, he is the same person, which is clear by the identical birth/death dates and the clear genealogical evidence that he alone married Eliza, Cora, and Alice.

In short, he may be buried in Elder Mill but he also has a gravestone in Watkinsville. May I ask what the concern is with connecting these stones with each other? It is obviously the same person.

William Joseph Elder correction
I'm not entirely sure where William Joseph Elder is buried, but he certainly has two gravestones in Oconee County. One is at the Elder Mill Cemetery, and the other is at the Watkinsville Cemetery. Each are with his wives. The Elder Mill Cemetery contains the burial site of his first two wives, and the Watkinsville Cemetery has his third and final wife. His have gravestones with each part of his family.

You can see his Watkinsville gravestone on Memorial #38365991 and its respective image here:

The Elder Mill Cemetery has its own gravestone for him in Memorial #34667672 and its image is here:

The tombstone that is posted clearly shows the death date as 27 Sep 1864.
Any help in getting this corrected will be greatly appreciated.

Received your message about deleting my memorial. My memorial was created over a year before yours so you should delete your memorial. You are welcome to add the photo to mine if you want.

Oops. Mental lapse. Her father B T Highfield died in the Civil War and his burial place is unknown.
