East bank of the Saint Joseph River, 0.3 mile south ( or is it north? see below) of Wheelock Road
No longer visible - two tombstones: 1857, 1861. Recorded directions are 0.3 mile south of Wheelock Road, Google map indicates it would be 0.2 mile north of Wheelock Road in order to be along the east bank of St. Joseph River near a large tree. In 2008 the NSDAR could not locate anything to take photos. Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana1980s reading said the markers were on the St. Joseph River bank beside a very large and old tree. If you know where the two Rhodes tombstones are located please let us know.
Earliest date October 30, 1873. There is supposed to be a large plaque in the Leo Memorial Cemetery. DAR transcriptions and photos will be included with that cemetery. Google map shows the former location on the east side of Saint Joseph River by Schwartz Road. IN DNR Latitude 41.2203 Longitude 85.0078. Area now looks like the beginning of Riverside Gardens Park with walking trails.
In January 2012 David Hiatt of Schnelker Engineering supplied these photos of the memorial stone for Graves Moved From Apostolic Christian Church Cemetery on Schwartz Road that lists 43 names. Only 2 names on the memorial have tombstones in the New Leo Memorial Cemetery. Since the road and the names in his photo are Schwartz, one would assume that is also be the correct spelling of the cemetery?
