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 very well kept, and nicely mowed cemetery is located on the west side of County Road 108 (Macy Rd.)between SR 97 & TR 382, next to Bunkerhill Baptist Church. The land is only slightly elevated above the roads, near the center, dropping slightly lower near the northwestern boundary. A very impressive brick entrance sign commands your attention as you enter the northern drive. The cemetery surrounds a beautiful Baptist church located near the eastern edge. I believe this is a church owned cemetery, that is cared for by a private lawn care company. Readings are only a small partial sampling of a large cemetery containing hundreds of burials. My readings are random, alphabetized, not organized by rows yet. The cemetery is quite old, and contains early sandstone, marble, white cast metal and granite memorials ranging from the early 1800's to recent time. It appears to still be an active cemetery. I hope to return next year and do a more complete reading of this cemetery.
