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 seperate 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 term , this is just a term that generally replaces the work "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.

Thompson, John, Jr. The west face of this gravestone for John Thompson, Jr. & his second wife Mary Ann Bulger. A "lynchpin" gravestone in determining whether John Thompson Jr. was the son or grandson of John Thompson Sr. (family patriarch) buried in the Thompson Cemetery. This west face very well may bear the weathered inscription for a John William Thompson, oldest son of John Thompson Sr. As John Thompson, Jr. was born in 1812, assuming the DAR flag & medallion have been properly placed, then this is the case.
