Thought you might be interested in this:
BENJAMIN R. MAPLE was born in Franklin County, Ind., in 1830, and is the son of Benjamin G. and Mary (Freeman) Maple. He was reared on a farm, and lived with his father until he was twenty-one years of age. In an early day, he taught school in Jackson Township, at 75 cents per day. He enlisted on Christmas Eve, 1864, in the Eleventh Regiment Indiana Volunteer Cavalry, and was mustered in at Louisville, Ky. He was in the battle of Nashville, Tenn. Mr. Maple was married, in 1855, to Miss Sophia Jesiop, of Jackson Township, whose parents were among the early settlers of Howard County. Mr. and Mrs. Maple have had eleven children, ten of whom are living - Seneca S., Frank S., Ellen B., Emma, J., Charles H., William, Anna H., Ida J., Isaac T. and Sullie. Mr. Maple has been a Trustee of the township, and also Constable for two years. In politics, he is a Republican, and he and his wife are prominent members of the Methodist Protestant Church. Mr. Maple is a pioneer farmer, having come to Howard County when the wolves howled around the cabins, and when all was a wilderness.

Thanks so much for contacting me. I am in the process of updating his information. You can link Isaac to Sophia in her memorial under "edit family links" so the two memorials will be connected.
