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~

East of Barton Rd, (TR417) on North Liberty Rd. (CR 15). This nicely cared for, township owned cemetery is located near the east side of route 15, south of Lower Fredericktown Rd. and north of Barton Rd. This would be approximately the 15500 postal number location. It is surrounded by farmland, fairly flat in elevation. It contains many old sandstone memorials, some worn smooth by weatherization, others broken into fragments, which has unfortunately rendered them no longer readable. There's about 15 rows of stones, some containing about 20 memorials, others with fewer. I would estimate over 300 burials, earliest readable stone found being in 1826, up to present time. It appears to be an actively used cemetery, as I have found recent modern death dates on some headstones. My readings are preliminary and arranged in alphabetized order for easier research. They consist of perhaps one-third or less, of total burials that exist in this cemetery.
