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~

Boutwell, Harvey, 1867-1943; Mary E., 1866-1931 These folks are my great-great grandparents. Harvey was born April 2, 1867 in Washington Township, Paulding County, Ohio and died February 24, 1943 in Junction, Paulding County, Ohio. Harvey was the son of Alonzo Boutwell and Isabella Roberts. Isabella was 100% Shawnee. Mary Elizabeth (nee Bable) Boutwell was on April 2, 1866 in Auglaize Township, Paulding County, Ohio and died on February 22, 1931 in Junction, Paulding County, Ohio. Mary Elizabeth was the daughter of James Bable (who served in Company C. of the 68th O.V.I.) and Caroline Matty, whose brother "George" is buried next to Harvey and Mary Boutwell and who also served in Co. C of the 68th O.V.I.
Matty, George, 1845 - 1923. Co. C. 68th Reg. OVI George served in Co. "C" of the 68th O.V.I.[Ohio Volunteer Infantry] during the Civil War with his brother-in-law, James Bable. George was born on August 1, 1844 in Seneca County, Ohio and died on December 12, 1923 in Junction, Paulding County, Ohio. George was the son of Frederick Matty and Margaret Hester, who were both born in Germany. The marker spells the family name as "Babble," which should be "Bable."
Babble, Alexander, 1837 - _; Mary L., his wife, 1843 - 1895 Alexander was a Civil War veteran and served in Company "E" of the 192nd Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry for about 7 months of 1865. Alexander was born April 14, 1837 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio and died on September 24, 1929 in Auglaize Township, Paulding County, Ohio. He was the son of Joseph D. Bable and Jane (nee Edie) Bable, who are also buried in Junction Cemetery (no marker in cemetery now). Mary L. (nee Traylor) Bable was born in 1843 and died on March 29, 1895 in Auglaize Township, Paulding County, Ohio.
