RE tombstone dates of Joseph Francis Taylor and wife

I have not touched the b and d dates that are on Margaret Knight Taylor's Find A Grave memorial. Those were the dates that were on the memorial when it was transferred to me.

My reason--I cannot read the dates on the tombstone. The picture is too blurry. I have inquired of the photographer if they would tell me what is on the tombstones as most photographers also have a notebook with the transcriptions. They have never responded to my quieries, so I am hesitant to change them.

Below is my reading of Margarets:
Tombstone date of death-- 23 Nov 1863
Aged-- 65 years, 2 months
Family Tree Maker Date Calculator date of birth-- 23 Sep 1798

My reading of Josephs;
Tombstone date of death-- 24 Nov 1877
Aged-- 76 years, 1 month
Familty Tree Maker Date Calculator date of birth-- 24 Oct 1804

If you can read the dates better, I would appreciate knowing what they actually say.

My line of interest is:
Sister of Joseph F Taylor is CInthianna Taylor who married James Knight JR. Cinthianna and James are my 4th g grandparents.

Joseph and Cinthianna's parents are Simon Servious Taylor and Elizabeth NORTH.

Mary Margaret aka Margaret KNIGHT, wife of Joseph Taylor, is the daughter of James KNIGHT, SR, a Rev War Soldier, and Margaret PRIGMORE. They are also the parents of James Knight JR who is married to Cinthianna Taylor.

James Knight SR and Margaret Prigmore Knight are my 5th g grandparents.

Simon Servious Taylor and Elizabeth North are my 5th g grandparents.

My ancestors are the siblings of both Mary Margaret Knight Taylor AND Joseph Francis Taylor.

Interesting, huh???

I would be very interested in your reading of both of these tombstones in this cemetery.

Thank you for the information, but I have a question. How do you know John, Jr. shot himself? I don't have that info.

RE: Abner Travis
Thank you so much for being open to my suggestion. Since most of memorial I have entered are to help others find loved ones, I don't have the vested interest in them that I would if they were my own family. Your research is certainly important to all looking for their loved ones. It takes many of us with different purposes to make this a truly informative site. I appreciate your dedication to research.

I have posted your member # as credit on the submission. As a suggestion for the future, you might include the credit info at the end of any of your submissions, then the credit would be reflected in a way you desire. With 38,000 memorial to care for, I happily make edits, but need all the help I can get as to entering the submissions as people would like. Chris
