Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an avid family history researcher, and love tromping through old cemeteries, whether I know anyone in them or not. I've gotten my husband addicted to doing it, and now my children follow me around and "help" by pointing out letters of the alphabet that they recognize or interesting features on the stones!

I'm searching for any and all members of the 91st Indiana Infantry, a Civil War regiment formed in Evansville, Indiana. (See my Virtual Cemetery!) If you have any information to add/contribute about any of the men, please let me know, and I'll be glad to add it.

I've also been gathering members of our local G.A.R. posts, former slaves, and whatever else catches my eye. Most, but probably not all, of these entries will be in the area of Vanderburgh County, Indiana. If you'd like to add to my list, I'd love to hear from you!

91st Indiana George Bright
Thanks so much Brenda. Wonderful to see the marker of my GGGrandfather George A. Bright of Co. C. Also discovered that George married Sarah Shively, sister of Henry Shively of Co. C, 91st Ind. So I guess I'm related to two members of the 91st.!
Thanks again.

91st Indiana Infantry
Hello Brenda, My g-grandfather, Daniel S. Wilson, was in Company G of the 91st. Also, Henry Warren, who was in the same Company, lived in his household, according to the 1850 and 1860 census. Do you happen to have any photos or other information of interest of this Company? Thanks!

Civil War Soldiers from Indiana
Hi Brenda, I enjoyed reading your list of Civil War soldiers from Indiana. What an interesting project!
I have a soldier from my family tree who died during the Civil War and I wonder if you might be able to help me. His name was William Hendrickson and he enlisted in Vanderburgh County in 1861. He died of disease in Otterville, Missouri in January of 1862. I have tried everything I could think of where his grave might be and I have found nothing. Do you know if Indiana or the Federal Government has burial records somewhere that I might consult? Is there some agency I might write to? I would very much appreciate any information you might have. Best wishes, Dan Kemp

Cox cemetery
Hello from Iowa:

I'm a desc of John Cox, 1754-1826. This site says he is buried at Cox Cemetery on 68 west of Poseyville with no headstone. In 1999, I visited Lela Barrett and Anna Griswold in Mt Vernon, IN. They took me to Cox Cem, but also took me out in the country to a dying cemetery in a field. Please download photos here:

As you can see, John Cox is actually not buried at Cox Cemetery near Poseyville, but out in the country. Do you have any idea where this nearly-lost cemetery is?

Would you please check and see if this John C 153888747 is the same as yours. I don't believe they are because mine is set in concrete. If they are the same let me know and I will add the pic to yours and take mine down. Lori Ellen Robb Martina
