This cemetery is located about a mile north of Chatham on Preston Rd. (TR75) and a mile west of St. Louisville.
Most recent update, 04 Apr., 2010.

Honored to present my readings of Marple Cemetery. This cemetery is located in a beautiful hillside setting situated adjacent to Preston Rd. (TR75) and located about a mile north of Chatham and a mile west of St. Louisville. Very close to the northern township line with bordering Washington Twp. Found the cemetery nicely mowed, trimmed, looks to be about an acre in size with majority of the existing memorials located towards the upper north eastern half of the cemetery. It's fenced on sides and back, front open to but elevated above the road. There is no sign at this cemetery, but it's named on county map. It contains many older memorials of sandstone that have not faired well with weatherization, as many inscriptions have flaked off and are no longer readable, while many retain only partial inscriptions of readable quality. Some stones are broken & toppled, but first observations are that most damaged stones are due to soil shifts, resulting from sunken graves rather than to vandalization. This looks to be an extremely old cemetery with readable burial dates inscribed as early as 1810 or earlier. Do not know at this time if it's a township owned cemetery, best guess would be that it is. The readings begin at the front, nearest the road and facing the cemetery from the road, and at the most northern corner, read from left to right (north to south) and front to back (west to east). As Always, have made every effort to transcribe each stone carefully but due to the age and weatherization, make no warranty to be one hundred percent accurate. If anyone has provable information improving upon the accuracy of this report, please contact by email or letter and will revise this information and mention your name as source of any revisions. The following readings are not compilations, but rather actual transcription, interpretations & photo documentation I made on this date. Readings within brackets [ ], will be my personal observations, speculation or knowledge not read from stone. Recent information given to me by the kindness of Dixie Peoples, 2nd great grand daughter of Mary G. (Marple) McDaniel will be noted by symbol [*].
For those that are perhaps seeing my 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 seperate surname from given name, 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 I find raised letters such as cin 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 in similar fashion. Sometimes engravers will use the term Æ, this is just a term that generally replaces the work "aged". Robert M.
