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~

Mohler-Union Cemetery was established in 1851, and it's still active. This cemetery is located on the south side of Township Road U4, about ¼ mile east of Township Road-6, about 2 ¾ miles northeast of Liberty Center, Ohio (Washington Township, Henry County). The coordinates are 41° 27’ 52.94" N, 83° 58’ 41.78" W. ." I believe that John Mohler (1790-1851), who married Elizabeth Overmyer, donated the land for this cemetery and the majority of the cemetery is a descendant of his or is related by blood or marriage. The following transcriptions will eventually include the entire cemetery. The page will take some time to write, the images pending notice will appear until all transcriptions are posted.
The most recent update to this page was made on 28 June, 2010.
