First of all, do feel free to use any of the photos I have taken and posted for your own purposes. I do this for you! Second, if you are related to the subject of, or involved in research of a memorial, I am happy to transfer management to you.|
I was heartened (and dismayed, but at least I am not alone) by the top contributors' bios, and to a person they insisted on politeness. We are all volunteers, and everyone makes mistakes. Kindness is so important in getting things done here. There is a reason I haunt graveyards, and it isn't because I love being around people ;-)
I am as close to done with bulk uploading the recorded burials from the Hale Index for Milford Cemetery as I am going to get. There are over 5000 burials now listed on F-a-G and the Hale index is probably around 4500. I believe the greater part of the Old Section is already photographed, and those requests that go unanswered are either no longer there, illegible, or broken. Strikingly, there are stones from the late 17th century and very early 1700s that survive, but they are few.

Thank you Alycia, Would you have a photo of the space you reference here. Could you add a photo of the proposed site.
RE: Problems Reported for This Request
Reported by: Alycia K on Oct 14, 2013
General problem: I searched the stated plot or section and could not find the grave Details: Also walked the area with the caretaker and he said that it was a certainty that the son's stone, which was present, would have been set next to the parents' stones. Those stones no longer exist although there is space for them.

Hi, I hope this finds you well and enjoying the end of Autumn. Yes, thanks, you shared the file with me. I have been using my virtual cemetery instead as I would be overwhelmed by the 5k names at once!
I think I've found and eliminated all but one of my duplicates, but could be others out there. The one that is left is waiting for findagrave to merge with the preexisting memorial created by a findagrave volunteer who apparently has passed on.
I have added a public virtual cemetery that lists duplicates so they can be investigated. I found some instances where there are identical birth and death dates for two memorials which revealed the names were slightly different and so on.
They're not in the virtual cemetery, but I've also found a dozen or so instances in which couples are identified with the exact same death dates, so I'm assuming these are human error (perhaps one or two instances are some tragedy, but otherwise seems a bit improbably).
Anyway, I wish you a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving holiday. New England is the place for that!

Thanks for the photos. It's especially helpful to have the shot of both stones with the explanation and Hale pointer. Sure wish they'd used better quality stone.

Thanks for the photo!
Thanks Alycia. I sent a request to the manager that they mark her memorial as "burial unknown" since there doesn't appear to be any conclusive evidence that she is buried there. Thanks very much for your persistence! You add so much to findagrave, it is such a pleasure.

|Greenie||RE: Adding sections|
Yay! If you have time to make family connections too, please consider doing so. I was trying to process both as I go along, and since I'm not on the ground there to be able to take pictures, I'm happy to do the paperwork!
