Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

DeWitt Clinton McAdams
Pvt. McAdams served with my Grandfather, Pvt. John Nelson Hubbard in Company A, 7th Indiana Infantry Regiment. Most soldiers in Company A were from Dearborn County. Grandfather enlisted on 7 September 1861, two days after Clint. They fought together in many famous battles including, Winchester, Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Laurel Hill. Clint saved my Grandfather's life on 3 July 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg. Grandfather wrote about his experiences and commented a couple of times about Clint. Sadly Clint was killed on 10 May 1864 at the Waller House, Laurel Hill, Virginia. He was originally buried on Sanford's Farm and later at Fredericksburg National Cemetery, grave no. 2006.
War Department form no. 14, #61004705923. His kin still live in Dearborn County, Indiana.
Grandfather had a cousin in the 7th and a brother, Silas Rosin Hubbard, and several cousins in Co. D, 3rd Indiana Cavalry.
Cousin, Jesse Smith, Company D, was one of the first soldiers killed at Gettysburg on morning of 1 July 1863. He was buried by a cabinet maker, Mr. Swope and later in Grave #10, Section D, Gettysburg National Cemetery. Regards, Cap'n Dan

RE: Zebulon
Justin, thanks for your reply. I discovered after I had written you that Zebulon Dickinson had a son named Amos whom I though was my great great gf but upon further research I discovered that the dates of his son didn't match those I had of the Amos who was my gg gf. So I am at a dead end with my Amos right now. Thanks for your reply and I am off to do more sleuth work before I claim any more ancestors.

RE: Wm. Little [Littell]
Thanks for your reply. I found the 1880 census, with last name spelled Littell, William, Sarah, Ferdinand, Steven, Stepsons George, James, & Willie Acre. I have sent edits . William died 1 Jan 1884 listed on his application for Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Vets.

This Sarah is his second wife. She was married to an Acre before marrying William.

Thanks for documenting all the Civil War vets.
I have relatives who lived in Dearborn County Indiana whose sons served in the war.

RE: Mary Bruce
My Calculations agree with your version of the birthdate. Therefore, I have submitted that correction myself. Seemed like the other copy had her maiden name, a link to one child and better photos. Your version also has a link to the husband, which I have also submitted to the other copy. I have been dinged in the past by Pete Nocks for suggesting that an Earlier Memorial be deleted.. it seems Find-A-Grave expects us to delete the later one and make corrections to the original.

RE: adam bruce
Find-a-Grave does not appear to allow most Townships where a Town or City within County is called for. I do not see any supporting evidence in my Ancestry.com data to pin down either Mt Sinai or Wilmington as a place of birth or death. I may have jumped too quickly to conclusion on this one.

I do have Adam Bruce, (1852-1942) as born at Short Ridge, Hogan Twp, Dearborn, Indiana, USA, but I'm sure that's not an option here.

I'm fine with leaving this as Dearborn County since you're probably correct that birth and death were most likely outside of incorporated areas.
