By the way, I went ahead and created a memorial page for "Randell Clark" and added the photo, if you want to take a look. Thanks again for your help!

Let's make sure we're talking about the same person. The name of the memorial is for Lillian Augusta Lee, but you said Lillian Justice Lee.
I've photographed almost the entire cemetery and I do a system (although I have to admit when I first started taking pictures I didn't have a clue what I was doing).
I remember this section specifically, first, because it wasn't that long ago and second, my back was killing me from bending over to take photos in this section. I had to decide that if I started, I had to finish. I always take a picture of the row (like a wide shot of entire row) before I take individual photos of headstone (this helps remind me where I was once I get home to upload my photos).
Now specifically to your question about verification. When I got home I checked the information provided by the cemetery and it matched with the location of this headstone. Now, with that said, mistakes do occur and I have found plenty of them.
I've created a "walking list of the cemetery" and intend to double check as if I were taking inventory (sorry, I can't think of a better way to describe it). I plan to "walk the cemetery" again with friends who will have a list and they'll be double checking that Mr. Smith is where he should be. If Sally Jones is there instead of Mr. Smith, that will be noted. When we're done I'll be able to review the list and make the necessary corrections.
I'm sorry for the long answer. I suppose I could have said, "I'll check for you," that's just not my style.
In response to your comment about the age of the headstone. I seem to recall that headstones in the County burials section are "handmade" so they probably aren't high quality anything and as you can tell don't age very well. I have to admit, the numbers aren't easy to read either.
Feel free to check back periodically or send me another email in a couple of weeks to see where I am in the process. If you can't wait, feel free to contact the cemetery directly.

Thanks for looking at this. Yep, I'm sure about the 1899 date but I guess it could have been an error on the part of the engraver.
I'll ask Martha, who usually creates memorial pages for this cemetery, if she has a "Randall" Clark and a "Randell" Clark in the burial records. Maybe she can shed some light and solve the mystery.
Thanks again, I'll be sure to let you know if I hear anything back from her.
