It could be both. If he was Jewish and the date of death and interment could be the same day.

Did you stay home today or venture out on the roads?

I got the drift when he refused to make changes to my wife's ancestors without proof. I sent him the published obituary for William Franklin Noftsger but have not seen any changes movement so far. I had anticipated he would delete his entry when I noted that it duplicated yours. He emphatically informed me that YOUR entry was the duplicate. I noted that he had the middle initial wrong and simply assumed it would be easiest for all if he would delete his entry with the erroneous information.
This is not the uncooperative attitude we contributors need or expect.
BTW, I have been most impressed by your rapid response even on weekend evenings. Your entries have encouraged me to contribute suggested changes to records you have added. I took pictures of my wife's ancestors memorials some time ago but had not, as yet, gotten around to putting entries for them on Find A Grave. It has not been very long ago that I found out about Find A Grave and started making contributions and responding to photo requests in our local area.
Many of my wife's (CYNTHIA (FRANTZ) MITCHELL) relatives (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) are from Longmont and are buried at Mountain View so I have quite an interest in interments there. Cindy's father (CARROLL LENFORD FRANTZ) and grandfather (ROY WYMAN FRANTZ) were athletic stars at Longmont High. Surnames of my wife's ancestors include FRANTZ, NOFTSGER, MCKNIGHT, GOLDEN, LEGGE, & BECK. We have the family Bible that ELIZABETH (FRONK) NOFTSGER gave to her son, WILLIAM FRANKLIN NOFTSGER, when he married. I have traced the family migration from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Iowa to Colorado.
