Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

I've read and all the guidance, emails, and Q&A, but I'm still confused. Do we need to find a photo of a sign with the town's name on it or the website of a mortuary, for example(I can't believe that a town listed on Findagrave and Billiongraves must be seen as official)? If not, then What is meant by "Sometimes it's hard to locate the town associated with the cemetery"? Somewhere I read that the nearest large town should be used, but I gather that was incorrect. Why not just use the nearest census designated place? What am I missing?

When using Find-A-Grave and Billion Graves be sure that multiple folks have input information before relying on that information. Even so, as you have said, there is no certainty that the information regarding the town is correct. If the entry in the editor does not have a town listed, and you are not confident after research which town the cemetery should be associated with, just leave the town/city blank and fill in the state. The nearest census designated place may not be correct either. You can also use two cross roads for the address if you can not find a street/road number. For instance:

Phelps County Road F and Missouri State Highway 28
