Thank you so very much for posting the Honor Roll of men who served in WWI from Exeter. I found the name of my G-Uncle Ray Bivens. He married my G-Aunt Mabel Hyatt. The Hyatts were from Fairmont during the 1920s, along with the Lutz and Schafers. I was in Fairmont and Exeter in October of 2018. My wife and I had been visiting our son in Ohio and decided to take a detour off the interstate to see what Fairmont and Exeter were like. Quite an awakening. Size of each town and still dirt streets. We live in a farm community here in Marsing, Idaho and this past year, the population reached 1,000. One gas station and one grocery store. I have all of my G-Grandfathers journals from 1909 - 1929. It is all about Fairmont, Exeter, Geneva and the life at that time. Again, thank you for posting.
