If you don't know where the person is buried, use the search feature to find the correct cemetery. Many surnames appear in several cemeteries. As always, watch the spelling. I have tried to get the spelling correct but these people were fickled. Penington, Pennington and Biddle, Beadle etc. appear a lot.
The number(s) under the stone pictures are my RIN numbers. If there is no number below the stone picture that person is probably not in the genealogy data section. I take pictures of stones I think might be of interest to me based on their name or proximity to other stones. I may later find the connection to these people but for now they are only suspects. They may be more than suspects to you however. If there is more than one number they apply to the people named on the stone in order from top to bottom and right to left.
Only the wording should be relied on. I have not made a great effort to get punctuation, capitalization, formatting, abbreviations, etc correct. (There are a lot of these stones and I have limited time.) The important information like dates and names are correct to the best of my ability. Many of the tributes might be readable with more effort or other techniques but I have not made much effort to transcribe them.
Generally (very generally), I have categorized each person under the surname on the head stone. Sometimes however, women use their maiden names on the stones. I'm afraid I haven't been consistent on locating these ladies. For example, if the stone says "Lydia E. Naudain, wife of Robert E. Cochran", Lydia might be found under Naudain or Cochran. I'm trying to decide what method would be best. For now use the search engine.
Many of the older stones are in very bad condition. I've tried to decipher the markings but it is sometimes difficult. Consider the condition of the stone before you rely on my interpretation of the inscription.
If the quality of the pictures looks like it is less than it could be, you're right. I have used an extra compression step (see the resources page) to make the photos quite small at the cost of some quality. Because there are so many photos this saves a lot of storage on the server (I pay for storage) and it speeds the downloading of the pictures when you view the page. If the stone was readable in person, it is still reasonably readable in the photo. If you can't read it from the photo, it wasn't readable in person.
