Taking Notes When Photographing Stones


I wish I had taken better notes when I was taking photographs of tombstones a few years ago at the Buckeye Cemetery in southern Hancock County, Illinois.
I can read most of the inscription just fine:
Elizabeth
daughter of
J. & E.
Rampley
Died
Aug 24 1855
Aged
16 Yrs ?? ds.
Can't read the number of days and think it might be a "9." I probably could have read it at the cemetery when I was there.
