Incorrect Death Date
My Grandmother, Lucy Bell Tune Mc Gough is recorded as being born 26 Dec 1871 which the picture of her tombstone reflects. However, her death date is recorded as 1953. This information is wrong. Take a look at the tombstone picture in Find A Grave, Burial Smith Chapel Cemetery, Carbon Hill, Walker County, Alabama, USA. Memorial ID 147745753. This plainly shows the correct death date as being Nov. 2, 1956.
I recall this death event, my grandfather Richard Roby Mc Gough also died in 1956. Check that info also on Find a Grave. Could you correct this information in your system?
It would correct the records for future searches.

@WilmaGurganus Thank you for pointing out the error in the death date of your grandmother, Lucy Bell Tune Mc Gough. You may change the death date by finding her personal page in Family Tree, scrolling down to her death date and clicking on edit and entering in the correct date. We also note the her name, S Isabell Tune, ID# L25Y-ZJ5, may need to be changed to reflect her full maiden name.
FamilySearch does not have the capability to change the information posted in Find A Grave.com and you will need to make a suggested edit on their website.
Regarding your grandfather, Richard Roby Mc Gough, ID# K8R9-VWS, death date, you have two sources that do not match: the Alabama Death record in 1954 and the Find A Grave in 1956. Headstones are a good source, however, the information on them may not be correct as it can be from the memory of a distant relative or acquaintance.
Best of success, FamilySearch0
