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 1,900 cemeteries and have found the gravesites of over 36,600 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 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.

RE: Andrew Jackson Barricklow
Yeah , that was a new one on me. Ohio Co. had the Rough and Ready Rifles, Hartford Rifles and Union Rifles. I found some reports online from Capt. Barricklow to Gen. Alexander Cummins Downey. Gen Downey was a Lawyer, General, Dean of DePauw, State Senator, Judge, one term Indiana Supreme Court member and general overachiever. He died March 26 1898 in Rising Sun. I can't find where he was buried so after Christmas dinner at my in laws I'm going to hit the cemeteries and see if he is around.

I guess I can answer my own question. They were part of the Indiana Legion, Co. C, home guards.

Hello Eric, I've got the above named fellow as Lt. then Capt. of the Rough and Ready Rifles, met Morgan at Vernon and captured 29 men and several horses. Do you have a clue which rgmt. the Rough and Ready Rifles were affiliated with?

They are getting harder and harder to find!

I hope you have a great Christmas.

Samuel Elba Banks
Hello Eric,

I saw you post on Find A Grave regarding Samuel Elba Banks #120014067. You have in the little biography that he married Emma Storer #22319257 on 28 Jul 1897. The person/creator of Emma A Storer Banks site has the date as 30 Jul 190l.

Do you have a source for your date? I'm confused.

Thank you,
Judy Newman

I hope you have not concluded that all of the men in Co I of the 15th Indiana were from Union County based on consulting the roster in Terrell's Report of the Adjutant General . . . I have looked in the 1860 census for all of the men in Co I and for almost all of the other companies in the 15th Ind and those in the 17th Indiana and in almost all cases a great many men reported by Terrell to have been residents of Union county (and other counties as per the record in Terrell) have been found elsewhere. Owen is just the "tip of the iceberg" in terms of being misplaced by Terrell in Union County. My conclusion is that if a specific county had more than the 101 officers and men to form a company the excess were assigned to the companies (and hence to counties) that didn't have enough. In the case of Co I of the 15th William Bennett recruited only 47 men from Union county, the balance were residents in 1860 of at least six other counties. BTW - this Alfred Owen was either the first cousin or nephew of the Owen who served as Lt Col in the 15th when it was organized at Camp Lafayette on June 12, 1861.

RE: Samuel Galey
You are welcome, Eric. Yes, I was also disappointed to find the stone so eroded as to be almost unreadable. His monument stands between his parents' headstone and brother William's monument in the Galey family plot.

RE: Brown County Civil War Veterans
The Archives at the Brown County History Center has a complete list of all veterans. Our archivist has had some surgery recently. but I think I can find the list for you. Contact me via email, so I don't forget. Dlynbid at gmail dot com.
