The Rohrer (Bookwalter) Cemetery is located on farm land that is not maintained. This was a family cemetery now caught in the fence row among the trees between two fields. Access is from a farm lane off of Union Road, north of Dayton-Farmersville Road. Some information about this cemetery, including readings, was taken from a reading by the Montgomery County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society.
