Making sense of conflicting records

I'd be interested in Chris' or anyone's take on this little dilemma: Ephraim Leighton Sr., born Jan. 1765, Edgecomb, died 10 Dec. 1849, Augusta, or so his tombstone says. However, he appears on the 1850 census. He is living with his son, Ephraim Jr., where he was living since at least the 1840 census. The census was enumerated in August 1850. In this case, if another record cannot be found, I'm thinking I would defer to the census but I'm not sure. How could a stone carver get a date wrong,…

how to make photo album on this site

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I cannot make the photo album work for me. I sent a message the other day to "report an issue" but haven't heard back. I also checked other forums. When I drag the photo to the box as indicated, the photo shows up in my browser, taking the place of the MGN page. There's no save button just a blank browser page with the photo. I've tried this in Firefox and Safari with the same results. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
