For those that are perhaps seeing these transcriptions for the first time, the transcriptions may give on first glance, the appearance of a great many typos, so I feel obligated to explain that the abundance of y, m, and d represent abbreviations for year, month and day. Although you will find most engravers follow similar patterns, it seems there are several different abbreviations used to represent these three time terms including: y, yr, yrs, yr's & years; m. mo, mos, mo's, and months; d. da, das, da's, and days and on rare occasions, h, hr, hrs, hr's, and hours. I tend not to use commas except to separate surname from given name, given name from date, except where found on actual inscription, same goes for the [.] (period). When you see the symbol [_] (underscore), I use it to represent missing or unreadable letters, or if a lot of letters are unreadable I may express it by several periods, such as Jos...h . Sometimes you will find raised letters such as "c" in surnames such as in McClain, or if the engraver added smaller letters that were left out and added later, when I encounter them, tend to express them, when possible, as found on the stone. Sometimes engravers will use the latin term Æ or æ, this is just a term that generally replaces the word "aged". One last comment, all actual text found engraved, will come first in bold text. All comments, observations, personal knowledge remarks added by submitter, concerning an individual, but not inscribed on stone, will then proceed in regular text. ~R.M.Sizelove~
|Limes, Harmon, born Oct. 22, 1791, died Feb. 8, 1861 My 3rd Great Grandfather, Harmon Limes, Jr., who was the first Marshall of North Lewisburg in 1844. His wife Mary (McKee) Limes moved sometime following his death and she is not buried in this cemetery.|
|Fell, William Wright, Private, Company A, 94th Ohio Volunteer Infantry & Company H, 11th Michigan Infantry, Civil War, 1843 - 1864 The only Civil War Veteran found buried at the Friends Cemetery is Pvt. William W. Fell. Here is a unique tombstone photo. It was taken while the new stone was still in it's shipping box. This tombstone photo was taken on May 2, 2004 while placed in waiting at the maintenance building in North Lewisburg. The Champaign County Veterans Office assisted with the ordering of this stone. Mr Dick Holycross of North Lewisburg installed it in time for Memorial Day of 2004. My appreciation goes out to both for helping identify a veteran who obviously died too young and had been too long forgotten. Please contact Linda to view a copy of a word document concerning her re-work of a DAR stone reading that perhaps may be of some help or interest to folks researching this cemetery.|
