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~

This cemetery is located between Old Mansfiled Rd and 5 Points, at Wooster Rd. (307). Located very close to Cavalry Cemetery.
The following information is courtesy of Mr. Guy VanNostrand: This mound was probably constructed by the "Mound-builders" in this area known as the Adena Indians, who lived in this part of Ohio from about 1000 BC. to 200 AD This mound was opened in the Summer of 1845 by Aaron Loveridge, and one skeleton of an Indian was found in a sandstone tomb at the original ground level. On July 30, 1894, James W. Hall and another Mound View Cemetery sexton were digging a grave and they dug into a grave that contained the remains of an Indian, and found the following artifacts: an iron tomahawk-pipe, a copper breastplate, a copper bracelet and a shell necklace. It was the custom of most Indian tribes to bury personal belongings with their dead, especially a chief or person of rank in a tribe. A Delaware Chief named Sac-A-Manc was killed near Mount Vernon around 1812, and it is possible that members of his tribe could have buried him in the Mound View mound.
