Started doing my local cemetery and after finding several Civil War vets I thought it would be interesting to look for Revolution and Civil War burials in Dearborn Co. Indiana. That in turn has turned into finding pioneer and forgotten burial grounds in my area also. Will transfer most memorials unless they are my ancestors. Corrections are appreciated, nasty grams are not.|
If anyone knows of a Civil War burial, [or Revolutionary War] vet in Dearborn County IN. that I have missed please let me know.
If you want to use photos I have taken ok, just give me credit.
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Thank you so much for the information on the above mentioned Pvt. William W. Anthony. I will be writing a book on this Anthony family. I had read a book written by his brother and one by his nephew and knew he died in Indiana but no date. He is a brother to my husband's great great grandfather John W.C. Anthony who was said to have died at Vicksburg but records show him released from there and delivered to Mobile Harbor, and no farther mention. We don't know where he died for sure but probably AL.

Not off the top of my head. I will dig out the family history and let you know. Again, I think the Jacob you are seeing 20 years after the war is Jacob Jr.
|Robyn Spangler Epstein||RE: jacob spangler|
Justin, these are my relatives. Can you turn their sites over to me? There has been more than one Jacob Spangler. Sorry I don't know about any database. Why don't you go to the Dearborn Co. Court house, look on the map to verify the property was deeded to the Spangler brothers? And maybe search there. By the way there were three Spangler Brothers but one fought for the South so he didn't get land.

Thank you so very much.

First, I would like to thank you for all of the work you have done recording our ancestors. I would like to know if you would kindly transfer the memorial for William L. Ross. Find A Grave Memorial# 75710543. William is my 3rd great grandfather.
Also, I was wondering if I might use the saying you have at the bottom of your profile about genealogists being "storytellers of the tribe". Is that something you created or did you find it somewhere? Again, thank you for the wonderful work you do for the rest of us.
|Harvey Ross||RE: Lydia Sylvester Plummer|
Thanks for your assistance in helping me learn how to communicate in Find-A-Grave. I am new and learning here, but not new to Genealogy. I have been researching the families of 1800's in Manchester, Indiana for over 40 years. I have only been a member here for 29 days. I have managed to submit 212 edits that have been approved, 73 pending, and of a handful declined, it appears the data was changed to agree with my edit before declining mine. I'm sure there are other errors here that I cannot correct. I will try in the future to determine who owns the error before I annoy the wrong person again.
|Harvey Ross||RE: Lydia Sylvester Plummer|
Sorry for the repeated Update request. Not sure how to find who's responsible for Lydia Sylvester Plummer appearing as both Wife and Child of Luther Plummer; and as both Mother and Sibling to Benjamin Plummer. The Younger Lydia Plummer, born in 1831, was the child of Luther Plummer, therefor Sister of Benjamin Plummer.

Justin, a belated thank you for the transfer of my 3rd great grandmother, Issabella. I'm just now catching up on the important task of recognizing your kind act. Best wishes and thank for your fine work.

In River View Cem I came across this gentleman
His stone lists his service in Civil War
|Donald Frantz||james teaney|
on memorial # 18646059 you have posted a pix of a civil war military marker. I believe this pix should be attributed to his father (who was James) the james you have the photo for was born in 1879 and died in 1900.
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to the vets of wars past.
