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 1,930 cemeteries and have found the gravesites of over 36,900 Indiana Soldiers, as well as some 9,000 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 grave sites 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.

Thank you for the transfer of Starling Waughtel to me. It took me, it seemed like, forever to find anything on Starling when I first started looking for him. I had a couple distant cousins in Indiana who went in and cleaned up his marker and did some repair work on it - this was probably about 10 years or so ago though. My paternal great grandfather James Harvey Keith served in the Civil War, out of Decatur County, Indiana. He died at Jefferson Barracks in Missouri but although I have a picture of his marker in Missouri I somehow have him in Decatur County also on Find A Grave. Will have to go back in and check that out but seems his widow did go down into Missouri and transport his body back. At least that is in the back of my mind at this time.

You're welcome! I enjoy doing it. I'm sorry he didn't have a headstone to capture for you.

RE: Alexander Lick
Days before that a man was there restoring the Lick headstones, just those three. Prior to that, I was unable to locate Alexander's headstone. I was going to talk to him but I didn't have the time to stop. This cemetery is two miles from my house.

RE: Elijah Penny
glad the photos worked out for you. I tried different angles to get more contrast between the shades of white, but with the flat head-on light and the whiteness of the stone it was difficult to read.

RE: 24710808 FAG Memorial #
Thanks for the reply. That's amazing that you've been to the all those site! Hopefully I'll get out there someday to visit the grave sites in person, instead of just one Find A Grave. Sara (Swan) Michaels of Montgomery County, later Benton County, James' sister, was my GGG-grandmother.

I had many relatives from Indiana serve in the Civil War and many of their ancestors in the Revolutionary War. It's nice to find people out their that honor their memory. Thank you for that.

The Lowman genealogy is quite interesting. I know that the James Arthur Lowman and Clara (Lowman) Nattinger families that lived in Benton County are for sure related to me. There was another Lowman further back that also moved to Indiana from Ohio (Samuel Lowman?). People have traced this Lowman line back to Augustine Herman (Herrmann, Hermann) of the Bohemia Manor in MD, and of Samuel Lowman Esq and Letitia Wood. They were in America from probably about mid 1600.

Anyway, I'm sure people have probably told you that before.

Nice to "meet" you. Take care, and thanks again for all of your Find A Grave memorials! =)

You might want to check out the memorial above if you haven't already. I've head the story for years about my ancestor being the one to shoot and kill southern General Zollicoffer. James and his brother William served together. They were short distance away when William bet James that he couldn't take a shot from where they were located and kill Zollicoffer, but apparently, as the family story goes, he took the shot and won the bet. My g-g grandfather was always instructed to keep the information quiet, as James and William were afraid of repercussions from the South.

Anyway, I used to heard the story as child from my now 90-year old grandmother as she was told it by her grandfather. She said her grandfather Schulyer and his Uncle James and Uncle William were all excellent marksman.

A few years ago she told the story again, and I decided to look up what I could find on the Internet. I had to call my grandmother as I forgot the name of the General. And it appears that the story she was told as a child appears to possibly be true.

Anyway, thought you'd like to take a look. I'm not the one that posted the information on the memorial itself, and I'm actually not quite sure who did, but they appear to agree.

The brothers were in the 10th and moved from Montgomery County to Benton County, IN.

I have many, many ancestors from Indiana (among others) that were in the Civil War including Perry's, Michael's, Swans and Hawn family. If I come across any more interesting stories, I'll let you know.

PS - wondering if we're related as my grandmother was a Lowman and several lived in Indiana. Did we discuss before? If you are descended from James Lowman and Barbara Welsh, then we are LOL.

Thanks for all your work in here! It's great! If you complete that book, would send me message? I'd like to purchase a copy if possible.

Alexander Lick
Many headstones at old st louis cemetery have been toppled, damaged, or are unreadable. I cannot locate Alexander Lick. I did find John M Lick and his wife Ann.
