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 State Rd. where it meets Reid Hill Rd, which is just a little hill that connects State and Allard Rds, just before Allard Rd. ends at State Rd. The 3 roads form a triangle as State Rd. curves to the left there, wrapping the cemetery on 2 sides. This makes parking a little tricky--you have to pull well onto the grass in front of the cemetery so people driving fast (and lots of people drive too fast out there) up the hill from any one of 3 directions don't hit your car (or you). Then you have to climb up a little incline into the cemetery--it's named Reid Hill for a reason. Not for those unsteady on their feet, especially as there are no paths, just grass.

"Two sweet flowers have drooped and faded, Two sweet warbles hence have fled, Two fair brows the grave has shaded, Two of my dear friends are dead.
One among our happy number, Through the fields and groves they've strayed. Now, alas! in death's cold slumber, In cheerless grave they're laid.
Why were they, the happy hearted, Doomed so young to taste of death? They with all life a jobs have parted, For the dark and silent tomb.
Twas their heavenly Father called them From a world of sin like this; Now in heaven they reign triumphant, Clothed in robes of holiness.
Dry your tears, afflicted parents, Feel thy loss to be their gain, In the Savior's arms they're folded, Free from all disease and pain."
