RE: Charles F. Frincke
I don't remember exactly where I got this information from, but I know it wasn't from a cemetery transcription because as far as I know they isn't a transcript for Woodlawn. I did locate his death certificate and it shows his name as Charles John Frincke. I'll change the middle initial from F to J, but I don't think the one you created is the same person as mine.

Conflict between cemetery name and correct name may cause a problem with visitors to their office looking for this person. If there is a stone, that name will prevail on F.A.G.
