Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Jersey City, NJ and lived there for the first seventeen years of my life. The only grave I ever visited was my grandfather; he died in 1960. I didn't know that, within view of his grave, just accross the street, was the unmarked grave of my older brother. The Viet Nam War, and my part as a medic from age 17, put me in contact with many more graves and the people who would visit them.
I am now a retired Police Officer living in Fairborn, Ohio. I have been an Evidence Tech (now called CSI), Forensic Photographer and Death Investigator during my career and I suppose I'm still doing those things now - as a hobby.
Darlene and I had to put Cherry Grove Cemetery in Xenia, OH on 'standby' and are working in Rockafield Cemetery on the campus of Wright State University. This old pioneer cemetery has been expanded to include donors to their Anatomical Gift Program and the records that I've been given go back to 1970. It will be a busy winter for us but we are not even half-way done with photographing the memorial bricks that line the walkway through the cemetery.
We are still working on finding the graves of soldiers in the USCT and the 54th and 55th Massachusetts Infantry who are buried in Greene Co., OH but this is mostly book-work now.
Any 'grave photographs' I have taken are public domain; copy them and use them as you please.
*TRANSFERS: Most of the memorials that I have posted are not related to me, they are projects that I have taken-on. I believe that ANY relative should be able to take over management of these graves. Just ask me.

D.D. Perkins (#94562937)
Do you have any additional information on him? Based on his rank, year of death, and place of burial, I believe this might be Delavan Duane Perkins.

RE: Orson, Bernice & Martha Knisely
I just looked up the Fairview I was thinking of and find that it is in Bellbrook, Greene Co, Ohio. Do you know that town?

RE: Orson, Bernice & Martha Knisely
Thanks for the history. IS there a cemetery in Fairborn called the Fairview Primitive Baptist Cemetery as well?

Thanks for the transfers. I have a question about the cemetery. My cousin thought the full name of the cemetery was the Fairview Primitive Baptist Cemetery but I see you have them listed in just the Fairview Cemetery. The notes about the cemeteries seem to indicate the Primitive one is no longer in use or has been blended or something with the Fairview Cemetery. Can you tell me more about that?

Schauer Family Descendant
Thanks for all you do, Wayne. I was so excited to see information linking the pioneer graves of the Schauer family on here. I'm currently working on the genealogy on Ancestry.com and wondered if I could have your permission to show pics of the gravesites on our ancestry page? I am, indeed, a descendant of Samuel Schauer and family and hope to visit the Byron Cemetery and Church (which my ancestors deeded the land for) before my father passes on. Hope to hear from you soon!

Would you please be able to tell me where the information came from that refers to his parents on the memorial. He is my 4th great-grandfather.
Thank you so much.
