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~

Granger Fairview Cemetery is located on Wilbur Road in Granger Twp, Medina Co., Ohio, just north of Rt.94 on the right side of the road, just past Highland Middle School on the right and Granger Elementary school on the left. I have created my own map of the cemetery, this can be viewed by clicking the link marked "map" below. I've assigned each section a letter, A-E. The cemetery itself doesn't have signs up indicating sections, so I've created my own version in order to hopefully make it easier for people to find the stone that they are looking for. The numbering of the rows starts at the south-west corner of each section and moves north. So, for example, in section A, the first stone is located at the south-west corner of the old section of the cemetery and is labeled A-01-01. The next stone in the row is A-01-02, and so forth. In this first section that I'm sending you, section B, there are also half rows, which I've labeled with a .5. This is because there are some rows that are very straight and long and then there are other stones that were placed at the end seemingly half way between 2 other rows. I've labeled these short end rows as half rows. Click here to view map. Note: I have changed the numbering system of the original images, uppercase numerals and text tend to be uncooperative with our server, but 1-1 still reflects to first row, first image.
