Grave headstone on my Great-grandfather, James William Huffman, on this site is not his....
The grave headstone with James' info is not his, the info is correct, just the wrong headstone. James is buried in Glendale Cemetery, Des Moines, Iowa. Please correct the picture. Thank you.

Hi Arlene. Looks like a grave headstone that is attached to your g-grandfather is wrong and something needs to be done about it. I'm a little confused since you asked that the "picture" be corrected. There are several folks in Family Tree with this name, you may want to give a little more information so that we can find the right person and see what can be done.0
I noticed your comment and wondered if your concern is about the picture at the Find a Grave memorial, or if you have a concern about a picture you are seeing in the FamilySearch Family Tree.
Find a Grave is a separate website, and while you can find records from the Find a Grave site when you do a search at FamilySearch.org, only the administrators at Find a Grave can help correct information that is at their site.
If there are pictures or information at FamilySearch that you have questions about, please remember that each person has a unique ID number that represents them in the Family Tree program. Using the birth information that is connected to your Find a Grave memorial, we found the record of James William Huffman L6RK-161. We believe he is your ancestor, and we noticed as we opened his details page that there are 11-memories that have been uploaded for him.
We also noticed that there have been several individuals who have contributed information about him in Family Tree, and clicking the names of these contributors will allow you to contact them through FamilySearch messaging if you question what has been shared at the FamilySearch website.
We have provided a link to a brief article that explains you must contact Find a Grave to have information corrected at their site, and an additional article explains how to contact other contributors who are working at FamilySearch if you find incorrect information about your ancestors in Family Tree. We hope these articles will be helpful as you continue to try to correct the information you are concerned about.
Best wishes in your continued family history efforts!0
The picture I was referring to is the one on his page - it is not his - the name is Edward something, can't quite make out the last name.
I am enclosing an info sheet R/T James William Huffman, in hopes this will help you clear up the confusion. It has his memorial ID on it: 76576179. If you should need something else, more specific, please let me know.
Please let me know if/when you locate his headstone, I would love a picture of it and am in hopes the right one can be placed with his info sheet.

Good afternoon Cheryl,
Problem solved. I contacted Glendale Cemetery yesterday, they did some searching and apparently the stone that shows up with his site is not his. It apparently is someone close to his plot. They said that James William Huffman does not have a headstone. I contacted a monument company by the cemetery today and they are going to make one for him. They will let me know when it is placed and send me a picture of it in place.
Thank you and Mike for your efforts and kindness. If I didn't question it, no one would have contacted me and I wouldn't have contacted the cemetery, lol. So your interest is greatly appreciated.
God bless you both.

Wonderful!! It is so rewarding knowing that you were able to work with the cemetery. It melts my heart that James will finally have a monument of his own. Bless you as you continue doing your family history.😍0
