Re: George A. Miller's Cemetery Book

In Reply to: Re: George A. Miller's Cemetery Book by Betty Haney of 1076

It is my understanding that the information came from various sources, primarily the headstones. However, I know that there are errors in the book (e.g., born in the 1900s and died in the 1800s). Do not take the information from the book as gospel. There are even errors on tombstones. I have a forefather that, according to his tombstone, was born when his father was 10 years old.

Your best bet is to actually visit the cemetery and get the information from the tombstone, and even then not take it as absolute.
