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.

This cemetery is located about 1 mile East of Fredericksburg, Ohio. The cemetery is located on the highest ground just Southwest of the intersection of Route 2 (Harrison Rd. ) and CR44 (Apple Creek Rd.). Access is via the property of Mr Steven Miller Excavating Company, 7107 Harrison Road (Route 2). He and his family are very understanding, but it's highly suggested that you pay a courtesy call prior to visit at Miller Excavating, 330-695-4708. I place this number here as a means to ask permission before visiting, please do not call for genealogical inquires. This is a business and remember you will be on private property and at Mr. Miller's kindness, so be respectful of his directions & instructions. There are about 30 stones in this cemetery.
