That is what is on the Discharge papers for my husbndsGreat Great GrandfatherAbraham Freeman. Ifooundd your find-a-grave site and realizedd there is no memorial to his service associated with his grave. Is there some sort of stake with a plaque that can be obtained to designate their
civil war service/?

He is buried in the Acme, Indiana cemetery.I have his discharge paperwhere he enrolled Oct 1961 and dischargged May 1862. and anotherform wherehe changed from Co C Ind Calvary(enrolled Dec 20 , 1863 and dicharged Sept 1865. So he did double duty?

AAn y info you have on getting something tomark his grave would be appreciated. Hoping to hear from you. Debbie Shake

Hazel Gertrude Stephens Yates Tombstone Photo
Eric, I wanted to thank you so much for adding the tombstone photo in the Palestine Cemetery, Palestine, Kosciusko, Indiana for Hazel Gertrude Stephens Yates Memorial #102846095. It has helped me, still looking for her husband Elester Clayton Yates born 16 Jan 1927 Buchanan County, Virginia; died 3 August 1972. The sad thing I do not know where he died. SS death index did not show location. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Nice to see you are a Christian I am also. Thanks again.

Indiana Civil War Vets
If I ever come across any Civil War Veterans that served in any Indiana Units, do you want me to give you a heads-up? I can't guarantee there are any in my area since most people here migrated west. I compiled a book that is more of a registry of the Soldiers that are buried in this area of their name, rank, unit, etc. I'll check that first.

Dr. Webster Lowman #105300288
I didn't know if you were interested in Webster Lowman for his Civil War Service or for family history. But in any case, his whole family is in one plot so I photographed them all. I'll have them posted tomorrow morning. I just got in and it's been a long day.

Thank you for the transfer of Starling Waughtel to me. It took me, it seemed like, forever to find anything on Starling when I first started looking for him. I had a couple distant cousins in Indiana who went in and cleaned up his marker and did some repair work on it - this was probably about 10 years or so ago though. My paternal great grandfather James Harvey Keith served in the Civil War, out of Decatur County, Indiana. He died at Jefferson Barracks in Missouri but although I have a picture of his marker in Missouri I somehow have him in Decatur County also on Find A Grave. Will have to go back in and check that out but seems his widow did go down into Missouri and transport his body back. At least that is in the back of my mind at this time.

RE: Alexander Lick
Days before that a man was there restoring the Lick headstones, just those three. Prior to that, I was unable to locate Alexander's headstone. I was going to talk to him but I didn't have the time to stop. This cemetery is two miles from my house.

RE: Elijah Penny
glad the photos worked out for you. I tried different angles to get more contrast between the shades of white, but with the flat head-on light and the whiteness of the stone it was difficult to read.

RE: 24710808 FAG Memorial #
Thanks for the reply. That's amazing that you've been to the all those site! Hopefully I'll get out there someday to visit the grave sites in person, instead of just one Find A Grave. Sara (Swan) Michaels of Montgomery County, later Benton County, James' sister, was my GGG-grandmother.

I had many relatives from Indiana serve in the Civil War and many of their ancestors in the Revolutionary War. It's nice to find people out their that honor their memory. Thank you for that.

The Lowman genealogy is quite interesting. I know that the James Arthur Lowman and Clara (Lowman) Nattinger families that lived in Benton County are for sure related to me. There was another Lowman further back that also moved to Indiana from Ohio (Samuel Lowman?). People have traced this Lowman line back to Augustine Herman (Herrmann, Hermann) of the Bohemia Manor in MD, and of Samuel Lowman Esq and Letitia Wood. They were in America from probably about mid 1600.

Anyway, I'm sure people have probably told you that before.

Nice to "meet" you. Take care, and thanks again for all of your Find A Grave memorials! =)

You might want to check out the memorial above if you haven't already. I've head the story for years about my ancestor being the one to shoot and kill southern General Zollicoffer. James and his brother William served together. They were short distance away when William bet James that he couldn't take a shot from where they were located and kill Zollicoffer, but apparently, as the family story goes, he took the shot and won the bet. My g-g grandfather was always instructed to keep the information quiet, as James and William were afraid of repercussions from the South.

Anyway, I used to heard the story as child from my now 90-year old grandmother as she was told it by her grandfather. She said her grandfather Schulyer and his Uncle James and Uncle William were all excellent marksman.

A few years ago she told the story again, and I decided to look up what I could find on the Internet. I had to call my grandmother as I forgot the name of the General. And it appears that the story she was told as a child appears to possibly be true.

Anyway, thought you'd like to take a look. I'm not the one that posted the information on the memorial itself, and I'm actually not quite sure who did, but they appear to agree.

The brothers were in the 10th and moved from Montgomery County to Benton County, IN.

I have many, many ancestors from Indiana (among others) that were in the Civil War including Perry's, Michael's, Swans and Hawn family. If I come across any more interesting stories, I'll let you know.

PS - wondering if we're related as my grandmother was a Lowman and several lived in Indiana. Did we discuss before? If you are descended from James Lowman and Barbara Welsh, then we are LOL.

Thanks for all your work in here! It's great! If you complete that book, would send me message? I'd like to purchase a copy if possible.

Many headstones at old st louis cemetery have been toppled, damaged, or are unreadable. I cannot locate Alexander Lick. I did find John M Lick and his wife Ann.

This gentleman was my great great grandfather and was 34 years or there about when he was killed.
He joined the Union Army from Indiana and was married to Saloma Dillman Myers and left behind five children all under the age of 10. His wife lived to be 106 years of age before joining her husband. She never remarried.

RE: Andrew Jackson Barricklow
Yeah , that was a new one on me. Ohio Co. had the Rough and Ready Rifles, Hartford Rifles and Union Rifles. I found some reports online from Capt. Barricklow to Gen. Alexander Cummins Downey. Gen Downey was a Lawyer, General, Dean of DePauw, State Senator, Judge, one term Indiana Supreme Court member and general overachiever. He died March 26 1898 in Rising Sun. I can't find where he was buried so after Christmas dinner at my in laws I'm going to hit the cemeteries and see if he is around.
