RE: Arah M. (Barcus) Ammerman
My first thought was that the cemetery records were correct. But the middle initial of "M." threw me off. I needed to know what that stood for. I found her on the 1880, 1900, and 1910 census with her name spelled: Arah. (I couldn't find her on the 1870 or 1920 census.) I looked at your post again and figured her middle name was probably: Minta. But why does the cemetery have Sarah and Arahminta (should be one or the other)?

So, the way I look at Find a Grave is: it is just another source for information. This is a site of photographs of headstones with the inscriptions transcribed. Right or wrong - this is the headstone. I like adding links and other info - but, it has to be correct. With this one, I can't be confident that her name is anything besides what is on the headstone. I can, however, add a note mentioning the cemetery records.

Sanders Longitude
In plotting local cemeteries, I found that the longitude for Sanders if off by 1 degree. It should be -82 instead of -81.
