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 wish to present partial transcriptions of ancestral loved ones buried at Fairmont Church Cemetery. The church is quite old and uniquely has an Indian mound situated very close and just east of the old brick church. It can be viewed in the photo above. This is my first visit to this very large and well kept cemetery. Wish to thank Marilyn Norris, of Licking County Genealogical Society and also currently the secretary of this cemetery. She provided me with a map of the cemetery which shows this cemetery divided into several alpha sections, starting with section A, nearest the church. Section A, being the original oldest portion and each section A through H are divided by nicely paved roadways. The cemetery is located on a beautiful sloped hillside, and several acres in size, with entrance access on both Fairmont Road and SR40. My transcriptions are preliminary and only a sampling of a very large cemetery, containing thousands of burials. My entries are alphabetized, to make surname searches easier. My photos were taken 28 April, 2008 & 13 May, 2011.
