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 1,865 cemeteries and have found the gravesites of over 36,400 Indiana Soldiers, as well as some 8,900 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.

RE: Wife of John (Jno) Fletcher Willey
No need to transfer unless you prefer not to manage it any more. I have all my information in Ancestry and I like what you have done. I was trying to add more of his children, but was just experimenting and not sure if the updates will come through some how.

I don't think there was a second wife. Only other marriage with this name is to a man with the same name in Texas.

My brother was the one asking me questions about your entry. So I signed up this morning to see what I could do. As a rule, I don't use find a grave.

Wife of John (Jno) Fletcher Willey
John (Jno) Fletcher Willey is my third great grandfather. My father had his civil war sword and it has since passed to my brother.

In my research, I find that Pauline Garner (Willey) is the only wife in the first 64ish years of his life and mother of all the children. Here are the records to substantiate this.

Indiana and Federal marriage records date
their marriage at April 9, 1830
The 1850 and 1860 cencus show that Pauline was
still living with John Willey.
Military records show her as his wife.
This date range establishes her as the mother
of all the children.
The Garner family graves are in the same
cemetery. Her's is there as well
stating she was the wife to John F

V Hammond

Good afternoon! I have uplaoded photos for your V Hammond request at Lakeview in Larwill. The ititial on the tombstone is hard to make oout, it looks a bit like an M. None the less this is the only Hammond I could find.

RE: Lakeview
No problem! I an happy to help you. There are several more open requests there at Larwill, but there is very little information to go on. There are a number of headstones that are unlegable and that is a challenge too.
