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~

I first visited this nicely cared for cemetery on 8 Oct., 2011. The cemetery is owned & maintained by the Monroe Township Trustees. I talked to a person that was a trustee at one time and he thinks the cemetery has always been township owned, but it's possible that at least a part of the cemetery was at one time, church owned. It is situated on several acres of gently sloping hillside land surrounding a beautiful little white church on three sides, called Ebenezer Methodist Church, established in 1872, Mount Vernon, Ohio. The cemetery memorials are for the most part, in good repair and nearly all are standing. Sadly some of the older headstones are no longer readable, due to weatherization and age. I found an online site saying the cemetery was established in 1842, however there are a few tombstones with death dates as early as 1837, so there's evidence that the cemetery, at least the original part of it was used for this purpose even earlier than the date mentioned. There are recent burials, indicating the cemetery is still actively being used at this date and sufficient open land nearby to accommodate continued use for many more years. My readings are preliminary and random. I have alphabetized them presently to make it easier to search, with hope to read additional headstones and organize my transcriptions in a more organized method in the future.
