What's in a misspelled name

From South Onondaga Cemetery, Syracuse, NY-area:
I can buy "Dorthy" as an alternate spelling of "Dorothy," but I suspect Judge Palmet's wife was named Chloe, not "Chole."

Administrative note/ Excuses:
I'm in my last month of the semester (more or less) and, indeed, of my degree program in general. I have numerous projects to complete over the course of the next 3 weeks and I still don't have a job lined up. This blog has dropped quite low in my list of priorities for the time being. It hasn't helped that Syracuse has been experiencing a prolonged winter which discourages outdoor activities (like, you know, photographing headstones in cemeteries). Expect the lack of updates to continue. My apologies.
