Dear PMs,

Just a not to let you know that this profile was flagged with "Error 574: FindAGrave - Imprecise birth date." Based on the kind of FindAGrave profile it is, I am going to make a note that the FindAGrave memorial is based on family stories rather than primary sources and not to be relied on.
