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 would like to present the readings for Hupp-Hoskinson Cemetery. This cemetery was first associated with a Baptist Church located near state route 40. The cemetery was said to have been moved early in it's history due to road improvements in the area. My research for this cemetery is only preliminary. The land owner suggest that the cemetery was first established near SR40, and moved about quarter mile north, on a wooded hillside. The earliest readable stone I found in this cemetery was dated 1814, so it's quite early in this area's history, being used for this purpose longer than many cemeteries in the area. It is situated on a sloping area of land, a few hundred feet below the southern ridge of a hillside. There are remnants of a farm fence, but most has deteriorated and fallen into the undergrowth. As evidenced by the 1814 tombstone found, it will quietly celebrate it's 200th anniversary very soon. I first want to thank the land owners for their kindness in allowing a group of genealogist, including myself, to come in, clean, transcribe, and photograph this cemetery. The owners of this land request that no one come to this cemetery site without first writing and getting permission first. You will probably not find the little cemetery unless the land owner or someone that has traveled there before accompanies you. Please respect the landowner's privacy and do not trespass. Mr & Mrs Ice, were very gracious to allow me to post their email address, so that anyone wishing to visit this cemetery could contact them: The cemetery was at one time cared for by the township trustees, but for many years it has been left to the landowner, and neighbors to care for it. As you can see when we first arrived today, the undergrowth was already beginning to take over the memorials. With the assistance of many helpful folks today the area has been cleaned of brambles and ivy. Now most stones are again viewable and most can be read. There are a few that have deteriorated to point that we are no longer able to decipher the engravings, but most are still readable. The cemetery has a mix of sandstone, marble and at least one more modern granite marker. Wish to thank Elizabeth & Larry Bicking, Ada Gutridge, Carl & Ginny Gutridge, and Marilyn Norris for all their wonderful work in cleaning and gleaning the data from the tombstones. There is a plan to return later this spring with hopes of locating additional stones that were not located on this first trip. The following readings are listed alphabetically to make research easier and include all tombstones found on this date, 24 April, 2010.The most recent update was made on 22 May, 2010. There was a very nice dedication service conducted on 14 November, 2010, for the new tombstone set to honor Rev. War Patriot, Isaiah Hoskinson.
