Bio and Links
As to name conventions related to birth, marriage and death record variations, I generally name the memorial, even if misspelled, according to the death record, which may just be the death index card, observation of local microfilm or what the cemetery has in its files. Since this is Find A Grave, it makes sense to me to name the memorial after the information most proximal to the death event. However, I make exceptions if the death index card is the sole misspelling.

The FAQs for this site do not provide guidance on memorial naming conventions. Until such time, this is where I stand. Period. (September 2015)

I am still here--but much, much less involved--and am currently exploring other outlets related to genealogy. (June 2016)
