Welcome to Tombstone Tuesdays, a weekly look at a tombstone, cemetery, or cemetery website. In some cases, the tombstone will be one I photographed. In other cases, it will be one I transcribed on BillionGraves. In some cases, the tombstone showcased may come from a Facebook cemetery group.
I found Kent’s headstone New Year’s Eve 2012 while transcribing records on BillionGraves. I was surprised as the death date read 2017! I wondered if the date should have read 2007, 2010, or 2012. I managed to find a friend of Kent who assumed me Kent was alive and well. In an e-mail to a contributor on Find-A-Grave, I mentioned Kent’s unusual death date. He said it sounded like something Kent would do. This was my first experience where someone added an intentionally incorrect death date.
