The Mary Penrose Wayne Chapter NSDAR, (National Society Daughter's of the American Revolution) Allen County Indiana Cemetery Project contains transcribed names from the DAR readings in 1932 and ACGSI readings in the 1980's and will eventually have photographs of all tombstones in all Allen County, Indiana cemeteries.

Find-A-Grave may have names, dates, similar tombstone photos, some newspaper obituaries and occasionally additional family information. Obituaries can be found in the Genealogy Center Obituary Index where volunteers will find, photocopy and mail the copies when ordered for a small copying fee. Recent obituaries will often be found online on the Funeral Home web sites or within one year of publication on the local Fort Wayne newspapers Legacy.com site.

Rural cemetery on east bank of the Saint Joseph River, 0.2 mile south of the Wheelock Road

Only two stones: 1857, 1861.

Swartz (Schwartz?) Cemetery

Removed across the Saint Joseph River to the back part of Leo Memorial Park Cemetery at Leo, Indiana. Earliest date October 30, 1873. There is a large plaque in the Leo Memorial Cemetery and the DAR transcription and photos will be included with that cemetery. Google map shows the former location on 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?
