The question still remains what, if anything, can you do to get it corrected.

It is not all that unusual to find errors on old gravestones likely because the stone was erected years later by a family member who had incorrect information. I suppose present day family members could have it changed but that's likely rare.

If the marker was placed by say an historical group of some kind then it would not seem inappropriate to ask that it be changed.
