There is info on a historic object in a church. Do I need to put that in the sources? I did source a transcription, but this transcription is incorrect, so I think I should source the original object somehow. Do I need to source the original object? And if so, how?

Yes.  For the source I would say something like, “Image of memorial tablet in [church, location].  Photo taken by [photographer] in [date].”  

Then in the text of the biography you can explain when the tablet was placed and what it says.
