I do not mean to disrespect you, but I do not agree with your proposal, and I will not delete the drawing. It is the oldest depiction of the stone and aids to show damages to the stone over time. It is historically valuable.
You can however ask FindAGrave to delete the burry images by the user 'TheGuardian' as he or she is inactive.
Best of luck.

Oops! the cemetery is spelled Scherer Cemetery...not "Sherer."
I apologize for not proof reading.
|Beth Thurston||RE: James Carson (Sr.) Hamilton Co, IN|
Thank you Sandra for replying. I have the history book that you referred too, and there is much information about my 2nd Great Grandfather.
I have the records from Cicero Cemetery, and it has his family buried there. But, if you check the obituaries of the family members, it says they were buried in Sherer Cemetery,which is also called Crown Hill cemetery. I believe all three cemeteries are posted on find a grave, along with my family members' gravestones.
I uploaded my family in the Scherer Cemetery, and have posted my research and gravestones on each of their memorial pages. My family must have been graveyard hoppers!! Or they bought plots in Cicero, and Crown Hill/Scherer opened up and they decided that would be their final resting place.
I will be researching why they are listed in both cemeteries, and when I figure out what was going on back then, I'll be sure to post it on their memorial pages to end the confusion.
Thanks again for honoring my family. They were very involved in Hamilton County, and the more information that is passed around about them, will help other folks know some of the history and happenings in the county way back in time.

I noticed you posted a picture of my 3rd Great Grandfather James R Carson on his memorial page in Cicero Cemetery, Hamilton County, Indiana. I was wondering if you are a descendant.
If you are, I would be happy to share my research with you and would love to find out how we connect.

Thank you for the information. I have also asked for pictures of the tombstones.
Thank you for your work and your time.
|Butterfly Rose||RE: Infants Churchill|
I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you. I have made the corrections that you asked of me. Now all I need are the dates. By any chance would you happen to have those?
|Arnold Grundvig||RE: Sarah Morton's Birthday|
I agree that birth and death dates are all over the place, whether from the parents or contemperaneous records. Having conducted many funerals, when a child dies, or any family member, for that matter, there is grief, anguish, and sometimes, confusion. That said, most of that confusion is related to the blur of ongoing events, as they pass through the stages of grief. If anything burns in a parent's mind it is the sweetness of memories of the birth and life of their newly departed child. When they memorialize that child, as on a headstone, their first-hand memories are not to be ignored out of hand.
If parents pay to put a birthdate on a headstone, it is taken at face value. After all, the parents were there. If parents instead put the death date and followed the archaic custom of listing the life span in years, months, and days, why should it be rejected? Does it matter that no records verify the parents' memories?
If we apply your logic across the board, the only dates we would rely on from grave markers would be death dates. All findagrave records would show "Birth: Unknown." Does that make sense? I believe we should do the best we can with the information we have.
Please feel free to reject my birth date calculations if you must. I will continue to calculate birth dates and submit them whenever I find them missing from family members' headstones.
There is no hurry. When every you get chance. I know there is lot on their son James, and his family. I hope is something on there father and mother.
You are welcome. I thought it would be easier, since you were working on her. I hate when real life gets in the way of the hobby! Savor the moments!

|Arnold Grundvig||Sarah Morton's Birthday|
Sarah's monument listed her death date as: November 12, 1788, at the age of
7 Years 9 months 9 days.
Deduct 7 years 9 months 9 days from
November 12, 1788 and the resulting date is
February 3, 1781.
This birth record is "written in stone."
It was nearly 100% likely that it was written at the direction of her parents, who could be safely relied on to provide accurate information on their little girl.
Please feel free to disregard what her parents paid to have written on her monument.
