Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTICE: I no longer have a steady Internet connection, and do not have copious amounts of time for this site. I make updates as time is available (not much, currently). Repeated messages (and attitudes shown) will not help.


Along with members of my own family, I am also interested in members of the 74th Indiana Volunteer Infantry (Civil War unit), and their descendants. My first American ancestor was a member of this regiment.

RE: William Vose
I don't know when or if I will get back to this cemetery. Steuben County is about an hour drive from me. That particular day I just wanted to take a drive and that cemetery is where I ended up. Barb

Housouer)as well as my g.g.g.grandfather, Abraham Bennett. You can see the Housouer's in find a grave in Elkhart Co In. and Bennett in Steuben Co. In. Dan Brothers
