Photo on George W Blazer Memorial
On #39794001 (George W Blazer) - you posted a photo - that photo goes on his brother's memorial. John P Blazer (who was in the 10th Reg Kansas Infantry). John P Blazer's memorial is #82472224.
I figured you wanted to make sure it was on the correct memorial. Thanks so much!

RE: Milford Adams
I located Eleanor and one of the Johnsons that were in Co I 70th Ind Inf. These books that I have not only list the person, but tell me in what section and row they are in. You mention the 17th Ind Inf, but on the stones it is called the 7th. Are they the same? If I can help you locate anyone, let me know.

Milford Adams

While I could find no Milford Adams at Greenlawn Cemetery in Johnson County Indiana, there is a M.G. Adams buried there which I suspect is him. He has a civil war stone that says "Co. F. 7 Ind. Inf". Interestingly, in the same section that M.G. is in, there is other Civil War vets from the same outfit. They are: Frank J. Pusey, died April 19 1889, and James M. Brown, born September 13 1842, died November 3 1920. Both from the same outfit, Co. F. 7 Ind Inf. If you are searching for any other Civil War vets in Johnson County, I have books for all the cemeteries done from various readings that were done between 1932 and 2000. If I can be of any assistance, just ask.

Henry C. Gibson
Hi John,

I'm trying to locate the grave of Henry C. Gibson, died 03/18/1864 in Nashville, Tennessee. He was in Co. K, 33rd Indiana Infantry. I see you created a memorial for him and listed the cemetery as Forest Lawn in Greenwood. I called the cemetery today to get a grave location and they didn't have a listing for him. Also, the receptionist told me that Forest Lawn only dates back to 1915. Do you have any additional information on this "H.C. Gibson" that might help me locate his grave? There is another cemetery in Greenwood that is older - perhaps he is there? He was born in Jefferson County, TN, but enlisted from Warren County, Indiana. As far as I know, he had no connection to Greenwood, or Johnson County, Indiana. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

John Hunt gravestone

Thank you so very much for the photo of my great grandfather's gravestone in Pendleton, Indiana. We still can't figure out why he went there from NH and why his body wasn't brought back to NH. I decorate his wife's grave in NH every year, and now I can know he at least has his veteran's flag to decorate his. One of these days I'll have to make a road trip, but until then, the photo is the best!
