Benjamin Shaffer, Walnut Ridge Cem.
Buried Walnut Ridge Cemetery per Clark Co., IN death records Book CH-6, page 46

Benjamin Schaffer
age 98 years
died: 30 Aug 1930, Jeffersonville, IN

His military request for a tombstone gives the date of death as 29 Aug 1931, which is in error. On the request there are two spelling of his name Schaffer/Shaffer and they with with Shaffer

Hope this is helpful.

Eastern have a photo request, but it looks like you have already taken some pics. I have added some new CW grave markers and am still researching about 5 I can't quite read...too worn.

My GG Grandfather, Fielding Steele, served in the 38th Regiment from Indiana. While searching though the records I found a link to your site. His Find-a-grave Memorial is 86614531. I have a tintype I believe to be his Union outfit. Not positive it is him, but pretty sure. He enlisted 18 Sept 1861 and exited 13 July 1865. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

RE: William H. Harris
Hi Traie,
I don't have any info on Civil War service for William H. Harris. His sister Eliza (my great grandmother) was living in Buffaloville in 1863 when she married my great grandfather David Allen. David Allen served in the 25th Indiana Infantry.

Let me know if you have a pic of the marker or remember where the marker is. If you have a pic would you add it to his memorial. Thanks,,Steve

Thanks so much for the added information about Alpheus Collins, I hadn't known about that fact, and I really appreciate you going to the trouble of finding it, and letting me know, I hope you don't mind that I added it to his memorial with the source and that it came from you. Keep up the good work, and thanks again, Marilyn

38th Indiana Volunteers
I have recently found a "photo album" that was handed down to my grandfather, Miley A. Graham, son of Lieut. Simpson Clark Graham, who served in the 38th Indiana Infantry. I have several autographed pictures in the album that may be useful to you. Should I just post them on the "Find a Grave" website?

Added by Suzanne C. Kitchen on Jan 28, 2013 8:32 PM

Kathy Reid
Yes, I posted the wrong picture.
I'll post a new one and try to figure out how to delete the one I did post. I didn't take a picture of the graveyard but will when I get back out there. It's in the middle of two cornfields and really hard to see. Thanks for pointing out my mistake.

Saw a note you entered on his correct name. Are you related? I'm a WRIGHT research and Greenberry's mother, Nancy Wright was daughter to GREENBERRY WRIGHT - whom I am seeking. Have information on him, if you are

William Thomas Johnson Death Date

I noticed you took the pic of the grave site of William Thomas Johnson, and was curious how you came across his death date since it does not appear on the tombstone, unless I just cannot see it in the picture.I have heard the year 1913 and 1916, so am wondering if you were able to find a definitive record for it. He is my 3rd great-grandfather.

RE: Samuel Manion
Thank you for the info on my Great Grandfather. And all the work you must have done on your book.

How do I get a copy of your book? I have several other relatives from the Crawford Co IN area and several served in the Civil War.

Again for the info.
