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~

This cemetery is located on the south side of SR665, just a short distance east of Glade Run Rd. The cemetery is located on about 1.5 acres, nicely mowed and would guess it's maintained by Union Township Trustees. There are approximately 17 rows, for a point of reference, I started readings at north (front) corner of cemetery, working towards south (back) end of each row, reading rows from the eastern (front) corner of cemetery, working rows westward. Each memorial is identified with a different lower case roman numeral. These readings and photos or preliminary, the cemetery is amazingly old, the earliest readable date thus far found being Sept. 1809. I checked on an 1875 atlas of this township and noted it's clearly marked as a cemetery at that period and the surrounding land was owned by Charles Butler.
The most recent update to this page made Veteran's Day, 11 Nov., 2007.
