Re: Martin S. T. Crampton
I'm unsure!

Based on my Experience of Photographing several hundreds of Headstones. Have seen many who have been inscribed. Example 1921 for the Birth when the Birth was actually late in 1920 etc. They kind of Round off the Year...

I just went to Familysearch.org & what do I find? Two separate entries for Martin S. T. Crampton.

1) says:

Given Name: Martin
Surname: Crampton
Birth Date: 19 November 1920
Social Security Number: 370-16-5467
State: Michigan
Last Place of Residence: Midland, Midland, Michigan
Previous Residence Postal Code: 48640
Event Date: June 1979
Age: 59

second says:

Martin S Crampton
Michigan, Death Index, 1971-1996
birth: 19 November 21
death: 1979 Midland, Midland, Michigan
residence: 1979 Midland, Midland, Michigan
--------------------------------------
It boils down to a Judgement call.
Even with some Roselawn Cemetery Headstone Snapshots and comparing them all with the Obituary Index information. I've seen typo's when also noticing something not right! So, I check familysearch.org and know some Online Obituary Index information is in Error.

I'll correct this to 1921. Though, would love to see the Actual Certified Death Certificate. Though, it must be Shared by a Family Loved one. :) This is about the Best I can do!!!

Thanks Walt.

obits in memorials
I received several requests from you to add obituary information to some of the memeorials I created.

If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007".

thank you
