Duplicate entries
Scanning the database of Find A Grave. I found duplicate entries in four cemeteries under your handle.
They are:

Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery,

Clifford Ludie Cole (109907010 & 109907001) both entered on 5/3/13

Barrow Memorial Gardens,

Jessie Asbury Cole (109907017 & 109907016) both entered on 5/3/13

Bethlehem UMC Cemetery,

Sammy Monroe Cole (109907030 - 5/3/13 & 111670392 - 6/2/13)

Bold Springs Baptist Church,

Florence F. McDaniel Park (109907071 - 5/3/13 & 111670967 - 6/2/13)

I have added the rules of entry at the bottom. If you have any problems you can send me a message, I will be glad to help you.

Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.
