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~

Amanda-Northern Rd (CR16) at Westfall Rd. (TR57). This nicely cared for cemetery is quite large, nestled on a beautiful hillside, encompassing several acres located south of SR188 on Amanda-Northern Rd., at the southwest corner of Westfall Rd. This cemetery is owned and cared for by the Trustees of Amanda Twp. My readings are preliminary and alphabetized to make searching easier. This is only a small sampling from a cemetery containing several thousand burials. My readings are random, and only a small sampling from a very large old cemetery. Transcriptions/photos taken on 27 May, 2010.
