Possible Causes

  • All links to FindAGrave memorial are links to relatives.
  • Names and dates are not similar enough to classify them as a match.

Action Steps

  1. If all of the links are links to relatives, try finding the profile person's memorial and add it as a source. You can also use {{FindAGrave|1234|sameas=no}} for relatives.
  2. If one of the links is to the person's memorial, there must be a significant difference in names and dates. Check them to see if they are correct. If you find the error, correct the data. You can also use {{FindAGrave|1234|sameas=yes}} for memorial of the person.

The find a grave that is listed is not a mistake. The only found information is on the grave of the one referenced - information under the picture of the grave list the mother and father and approximate date of their marriage. This is the only information I have found thus far.
Susannah ? May with unknown maiden name is correct on Wiki profile.

Claim of Aldrich as maiden name cannot be verified by me even in Aldrich book, which only gives Susannah's first name marrying Samuel May. One of their son's married an Aldrich. I have one Aldrich book. All sources I show on her profile only give Susannah's first name. I do not see any sources at findagrave that supports Aldrich for her maiden name. This is one of my wife's ancestors and it has been carefully researched to no avail on Susannah's maiden name. Unknown-511352 H 102819111 Susannah May (Unknown) before 1745 not living Female Leighr-1 102819111 Susannah Aldrich If someone can suppy a proof doc, my wife & I would be grateful.

The Find-A-Grave source for Otto Scherp at the profile of Margaretha Krebs is not mistake: it is there purposely, as the Find-A-Grave profile for Otto Scherp indicates his second wife as being Margaretha Krebs and gives their date of marriage. Margaretha Krebs does not have a Find-A-Grave profile of her own.
