Thank you so much for providing these wonderful photos.
When I send you a SAC, I am suggesting that you actually use the information to complete the memorial , for example putting the birth info into your memorial rather than in the bio section.
I understand if you are wanting to verify it first, before updating the memorial, because that is what I do as well.

Hi Jan! You have him as "R Henry" per the stone. I was just letting you know his full name.

Thanks for their headstone photo
I forgot to give you the link where you can see earlier photos that were taken before the stone fell down: http://www.rihistoriccemeteries.org/newgravedetails.aspx?ID=263796

Re your message regarding George G Walker
I am misunderstanding your reply perhaps? This stone is in the same plot, number as wife Sarah and daughter Mercy M, and it definitely says 1861 and not 1867. I am aware it says July 29th, I merely gave you another transcription that says he death date was on the 19th available at LDS?
In the Original RI cemeteries databases, of which I have a copy of all the Mattesons and Mathewsons from the year 2000 (before people began changing it), James Newell Arnold noted whether the stone used a burial date rather than an actual death date. He usually cross-referenced with plenty of other documentation. I did not keep this original info for the Walkers as they were in-laws.
For some reason, when "newer" people started maintaining and updating the RI databases and a "re-verification" process, if a 100+-year=old cemetery had been neglected, or moved for "progress" (building and roads), they are now saying it is "lost" or "not found", when I am sure that when Newell did it, it was definitely there.
It has been transcribed by James Newell Arnold, in the original "Old" Rockland cemetery, SC050 before they all were moved to the "New" Rockland Cemetery in the early 1900's for the reservoir.
Additionally, it has been re-transcribed in SC150 New Rockland, by two more parties, AKW and PWB.
Thanks for the photo.

Thanks for the headstone photo. Would you by chance have a clearer one? The one posted is a little fuzzy.
Thank you for taking his photo.

Shame the guy let his cows destroy the headstones. Doesn't show much respect for the dead.
Let me know if you find the other cemeteries.
Thanks for all your efforts!
Happy New Year
