Since you don't mind, it would be easiest for both of us if you just delete your memorials. Thanks. Good cemetery photography is mostly good lighting... making sure the sun is casting a shadow to highlight the letters. Old upright stones are best photographed around noon. New flat stones are frequently best in the morning or evening. Stones under trees which are always in the shade are tricky but sometimes are most readable on overcast days. When there is a lot of moss and dirt, the only solution is cleaning the stone first with water and a soft scrub-brush.
Photo editing helps too, especially to straighten things or delete annoying background objects. Alice

I can't recall now, but I believe the middle name came from his WWI Draft Registration Card. I transcribed the entire cemetery back around 2009 and when I record what I find in the cemetery, I do a quick search on each person to see if there is any additional info I can add (maiden names, middle names, full dates, etc.).
Knowing how hard some of these Draft Cards can be to read from the original microfilm to Ancestry.com, etc., they can be hard to read. So, the middle name you have of Elwin could very well be more accurate- I'm just not sure since this is not my family.
Normally when I create a memorial for someone and there is a family member actively researching him/her, I prefer to have the family manage the memorial if they agree. If you want me to transfer these to you, just click on the edit tab of the memorials and request a transfer.
The stone may say Georgianna. It dose look like more letters. I do not have a photo of the top. I will change it.

Please use the edit for corrections. It give a link to the page.
Oh, and do it via his memorial site, using the "edit" button at the top. It will make it much easier for her.

Well, I would encourage you to write to Mary B and tell her you are his second cousin, and ask if she would transfer him to you, even though you don't fit the guidelines. I think Mary would like to have him in the hands of family. Just my 2 cents. She can always say no. Be sure to include your contributor's number.

Thanks for the photos. Stephen's stone is quite unusual.
|Dave Peck||Elizabeth Timerman|
Thanks for the photo. Looks like they spelled thir name with one "m" instead of two as in Timmerman which is usual. Or perhaps they economized on the stone.
|Chris Nichols||Allie Wilson|
Thank you so much for taking the time to take the photo of Allie Wilson for me.
