My great-great grandfather was Madison Bowyer (a brother to John Bowyer). Are you related to John Bowyer; and if so, how?

Photo on George W Blazer Memorial
On #39794001 (George W Blazer) - you posted a photo - that photo goes on his brother's memorial. John P Blazer (who was in the 10th Reg Kansas Infantry). John P Blazer's memorial is #82472224.
I figured you wanted to make sure it was on the correct memorial. Thanks so much!

RE: Milford Adams
I located Eleanor and one of the Johnsons that were in Co I 70th Ind Inf. These books that I have not only list the person, but tell me in what section and row they are in. You mention the 17th Ind Inf, but on the stones it is called the 7th. Are they the same? If I can help you locate anyone, let me know.

Milford Adams

While I could find no Milford Adams at Greenlawn Cemetery in Johnson County Indiana, there is a M.G. Adams buried there which I suspect is him. He has a civil war stone that says "Co. F. 7 Ind. Inf". Interestingly, in the same section that M.G. is in, there is other Civil War vets from the same outfit. They are: Frank J. Pusey, died April 19 1889, and James M. Brown, born September 13 1842, died November 3 1920. Both from the same outfit, Co. F. 7 Ind Inf. If you are searching for any other Civil War vets in Johnson County, I have books for all the cemeteries done from various readings that were done between 1932 and 2000. If I can be of any assistance, just ask.

Henry C. Gibson
Hi John,

I'm trying to locate the grave of Henry C. Gibson, died 03/18/1864 in Nashville, Tennessee. He was in Co. K, 33rd Indiana Infantry. I see you created a memorial for him and listed the cemetery as Forest Lawn in Greenwood. I called the cemetery today to get a grave location and they didn't have a listing for him. Also, the receptionist told me that Forest Lawn only dates back to 1915. Do you have any additional information on this "H.C. Gibson" that might help me locate his grave? There is another cemetery in Greenwood that is older - perhaps he is there? He was born in Jefferson County, TN, but enlisted from Warren County, Indiana. As far as I know, he had no connection to Greenwood, or Johnson County, Indiana. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

John Hunt gravestone

Thank you so very much for the photo of my great grandfather's gravestone in Pendleton, Indiana. We still can't figure out why he went there from NH and why his body wasn't brought back to NH. I decorate his wife's grave in NH every year, and now I can know he at least has his veteran's flag to decorate his. One of these days I'll have to make a road trip, but until then, the photo is the best!

Joseph M Rodgers
J M R was my great grandfather, and I am stuck in finding his parents. He was born in 1841 in Indiana and was mustered into the union Army in 1862 into the 17th Indiana, being mustered out in Macon Ga in 1863.Of this I have sufficient evidence. He married Isabella Quinn in 1868 in Ogdensburg NY. It appears from census records that he was born in either England or Canada, but these are conflicting from one census to the next. He did become naturalized after arriving in the US in 1859.My question is who his parents were, who must have lived in or near Madison Ind, where he mustered into the Army. He died in 1906 in Ogdensburg.Thank you for any help you may be able to give me! Jane F. Sherman

My search of all Civil War soldiers is going well. My dad and I have visited around 32,000 Hoosier soldiers so far. We are planning another trip to southern Indiana the week after next. Thanks for your response.

Major Henry Jordan
Mr. Bowyer,
I was searching the internet for photos of Major Henry Jordan of the 17th Indiana and found a webpage that said you were related to him. A friend of mine is working on a book about the 17th Indiana and is looking for a photo of Henry Jordan. Do you know, or have you ever seen a photo of Major Jordan? He would love to add a photo of him to his book. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John
I had sent the military info on Sam but am not related and didn't even realize that you had transferred it to me. Is it ok that I transfer it back to you to do the updating??

You have mistakenly added a photo to David Huston's memorial at Mt. Carmel in Ingalls (LINK IS 19299552) . The photo is of his daughter's stone not his.
