Ann (Taylor?) Stapleton 1848 burial date

I have been rechecking the Stapleton/Staples line in England since many Gloucester parishes are now on Ancestry, and I was wondering if you have any idea where this 16 Jul 1848 'death' (actually probably burial) date comes from on the page for Ann Stapleton. This burial is not in the Redmarley parish records, though the one in 1821 for Henry Stapleton is.

The birth places listed for both Henry and Ann seem off as well, but if you have further info I do not there may be something I am missing. The Henry Stapleton Ann Taylor marriage is supposed to have happened at Claines, Worcestershire in 1793 but I havent been able to verify it. A Henry Stapleton/Ann couple had at least 2 children baptized there in the late 1790s so it is possible considering Claines is not far from Gloucester, Cheltenham, and other towns the Stapletons definitely lived in.

RE: Andrew and Anna Hansen Thompson
Thank you so much for managing these memorials. There really is something amazing about maintaining a link with past generations! And thank you for transferring them to me.

Well, Lindquist is a perpetual care cemetery. If the family request, they will re-furbish the stone. Maybe that's what has happened. I dunno, I will remove my Wet photo, it doesn't have the look I want. As of your old photo, leave it. there are at least 3 open photo slots open for the family. They probably aren't even awawe of the Find A Grave website. We are an Unknown Army! I have developed a Find A Grave business card, I hand them out to people I find while I'm Gravin.

Look at your stone photo on Ferris C. Johnson 54641728. I don't understand why your's is so dark? I just swept mine. My top photo was coated with water. Wonder which one I should keep?

RE: Thomas and Minnie Robinson
When I checked Helper's cemetery I was surprised to see you had a request. I am feeling like a dummy though -- As soon as I got there, I must have taken the picture but forgot. Then I hunted all over that area and couldn't find her. I kept finding his, but not hers. Then this morning, I checked my pictures and there she was. I am getting such a bad memory -- Glad I was able to find her for you.

RE: Henry Stapleton 132892910
Yes, I too am a Staples descendant, through the daughter Elizabeth who married Levi Sawyer.

James Staples changed his name because he felt Stapleton was too 'aristocratic' sounding.

You can even see this change over in the English censuses. In the 1841 Census, James and family are still the Stapletons (they are living in Cheltanham, Gloucester). But by 1851, Sarah (who is living alone, her husband having made the trip to the US) and children are living in St Pancras, London and called just 'Staples'.

The problem with this Stapleton line is the dearth of records available for Gloucester (where the Stapletons are from). Parish record coverage online for Gloucester is poor. James Staple's death record does call his parents Henry and Ann, and if you look on FamilySearch you will see a James Stapleton baptized in Gloucester, Gloucester that seems to be him, but I have never been able to verify much on this family. He had a marriage licence with Sarah Limbrick (not Limerick) in Cheltenham dated 12 Apr 1830, and beyond that and what is on the censuses that is about all I've got.

Since he has a brother born 1917 I would think the 1915 date would be correct. Family members give the information for the DC and sometimes they are not correct. I think when the stone was made they might have had the correct information. You can make a note in regards to the confusion.
