In September 2014, the Dayton Cemetery Association worked with a professional restoration expert to repair a number of monuments which had been damaged by vandals. Our first effort was the Martin Welke stone, seen above. After the middle section was replaced on the base, attention turned to replacing the top.
And here is the reassembled stone:
We repaired seventeen stones that week and plan to continue the work in 2015.

I lived in Dayton from 1947-1962, but don’t remember the cemetery!! Where is it located in Dayton?
Also, I have photos of Dayton that I took in the 1970s, photos taken around the community that I remember when I was a kid living in Dayton!! How do I post them on this site, if that is possible??
