Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern Indiana and am very interested in the Civil War. One of my hobbies is to visit the graves of Indiana Civil War Soldiers. To date my dad and I have visited over 1,860 cemeteries and have found the gravesites of over 36,400 Indiana Soldiers, as well as some 8,400 soldiers from states other than Indiana. We have also located the gravesites of over 1,700 Confederate soldiers buried in the Hoosier state. I am also trying to find the gravesites of all of Indiana's Civil War Colonels. I am also interested in the 8th Indiana Infantry, Company I, and the 12th Indiana Infantry. I am also looking for every Chaplain that served in an Indiana Regiment in the Civil War. If you know of any gravesites you think I may have missed, or have some interesting information, don't hesitate to contact me. I am also working on a book about Indiana's soldiers that died during the Civil War. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if you are looking for a Hoosier that served in the civil war send me an e-mail and I'll see if I can help in any way. Currently, I'm also trying to locate every Civil War veteran in Kosciusko County, Indiana, and upload them to Find-A-Grave. I am also a Christian, and look forward to life after the grave. Thanks.

Sam Stewart Lombardi
Thank you
Hello Eric,
I sincerely appreciate the transfer of John Henry Stewart's memorial. I have it updated with his family members I have been able to find memorials for, and also added his military history which I found in the book, Centennial History of Grant County Indiana, along with his history as I was able to piece together. It is quite interesting (and long!) if you are interested in reading it. :) With sincere appreciation,
John Henry Stewart, memorial 63471592

RE: Book
I'm hoping to update as many cemeteries and get photos from each as I soon as I get caught up on requests. I've been getting side tracked, the cemeteries are in such bad shape. Most don't seem to be vandalism but maybe the hard winter and then no one picking up stones that have fallen, just mow over and they get buried. Instead of sitting down and crying, I start snapping photos of the ones that are in danger of disappearing. I will start a file of Civil war Stones. I'm amazed at what that D-2 does to the stones. They look like new. I ran into Headstone Healer at Riverside Cemetery the other day and he showed me the difference. Casey is supposed to be at Mc Cormick's Creek SP today demonstrating carving limestone, hope to meet him. We have some grave circles at Riverside. Sometimes there's a big stone in the center with graves radiating out from the center and stones forming a circle. Some are very old. You have any idea why they would do this? Religion, Masons?

I was able to go in to ck out the book. It is a book on Revolutionary soldiers in a Owen Co IN. Not Civil War. Sorry

No headstone is seen, but you may want to contact the cemetery to see if a stone was actually placed, or if it is hidden from view, as sometimes happens especially with flush stones.Telephone: 216-421-2665, Fax: 216-421-2415

Lt. Col. Graham
Hello Eric,

I can't tell you how pleased I am that you transferred Lt. Col. Graham to me and your generosity in doing so. Over the next few days I hope to add the biographical information to his memorial. In the process of research Lt. Col. Graham I have become very attached to him and his story of service in the Civil War, beginning as a musician in the regimental band in 1861 to his rise to commander of the regiment.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.....Mike

Lt Col. Richard J. Graham
Hi Eric,

Like you I am interested in Indiana soldiers in the Civil War, and I'm wondering if you would consider transferring Richard J. Graham #3669744 to me. I have been researching his life and have become very attached to him. I have his original application for membership in the Grand Army of the Republic and information on his service in the 13th Indiana, and life before and after the war. I would greatly appreciate your consideration in this matter. My family is from Indiana and two of my Gt Gt Grandfathers served in Indiana regiments and I have three Gt Gt Granduncles who died while serving in Indiana regiments, two of whom are buried in the Chattanooga National Cemetery and one killed in action whose body was never found.

Thanks for your time and consideration of my request....Mike

Civil War Indiana
While at the National Cemetery in Lebanon, I also photographed- Elias Cupps, Joseph Redden, Elisha Smith who are all from Indiana. Joseph Updecraft was photographed-but he is not identified with any state or information. I have made a memorial for Thomas Jefferson Warren, who was with the 129th Ind. and is buried in a cemetery in West Branch Michigan. It is memorial number 118815906. Many civil war vets have been photographed and memorials made for them in Michigan on Find A Grave already. Some county research groups have documented them as well-but they are often copyrighted. I will put Indiana on my list. Grand Rapids Michigan has a large veterans hospital- which might be worth checking.
