RE: My photos
My book on the Eighth Indiana has been published in a four volume series entitled, Above Us or Around Us. Volume I: The Story of the Bloody Eighth tells the history of both the three-month and three-year Eighth Indiana Infantry regiments from April 1861 to August 1865. Readers will learn how they chose their motto "Above Us or Around Us," how they earned their nickname "The Bloody Eighth," and what occurred during each battle. They will also learn about the soldiers' family ties, claims to fame, and tragic endings. This volume includes poems about the Battle of Cedar Creek and poems written by James Whitcomb Riley, whose father, uncle, and favorite teacher served in this regiment, and includes regimental correspondence. Volume II: The Men of the Bloody Eighth A-K and Volume III: The Men of the Bloody Eighth L-Z continue the story of the Eighth Indiana Infantry through the biographies of the soldiers and contrabands who served in this regiment. Readers will learn about the regiment's Medal of Honor recipient, the soldier who made and sold the first ice cream cone in the world, James Whitcomb Riley's teacher and relatives of James Whitcomb Riley and Carrie Nation, the soldier who held ten patents for his inventions, and the soldier related to Presidents William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison. Two soldiers in this volume named the town of Windfall, Indiana. One soldier and his brother built the first threshing machine in Indiana. Several soldiers experienced close encounters with death or PTSD, which led to suicide. Some became murder victims or committed murder. These biographies will leave a lasting impression on readers as they learn more about the men of the Bloody Eighth. Volume IV: The Story and the Men of the Bloody Eighth in the News includes the newspaper articles that provide reports during the war and about brigade reunions after the war. The articles also help readers learn about tragedies, special events, and the deaths of the soldiers in this regiment. Readers can also follow a Tennessee murder trial. The men of the "Bloody Eighth" lived up to their motto "Above Us or Around Us" and are men to be remembered for years to come. This series is now available on

My mother, LaVerne Versell Poage, born 4-5-30, is the eldest child of Vern and Esther. She isn't listed as a child or as Barbara's sister.
We visit the graves often. The flag shown in the picture was left by me.

Thank you so much for the photo - even if the grave is unmarked! I'm still glad to have it. And what picture on Mt. Rubidoux are you talking about? Did you also get a photo of that?

RE: James E. Bird, Jr. Find A Grave Memorial# 174849583
Hello Brigitte,
I wasn't worried in the least.
You have certainly gone the extra mile.
The grave location photo was unexpected, Thanks.
You have done so much for me.
I probably would never have found James Jr. if not for you.

Thank You! Your time and service to help others is greatly appreciated.

I hope you didn't need a boat to to get there. LOL

We just had a few days of snow and cold weather.

Have a wonderful day,

Gary Mowrey

Hi Brigitte!

Today I found Samuel Ringo at Calvary and uploaded a photo to his memorial page. He is at the Main Mausoleum in one of the rooms on the exterior of the mausoleum.

Sebastiano Rossitto
I added Sebastiano's obituary to his memorial and yes, he was the son of Tony Rossitto. But not your Antonino Rossitto. The obituary states the family lived at 1205 Pierce. The 1910 census (taken a few months later) shows Tony & Ella Rossitto at 1757 South 9th street and another Tony Rossitto family at 1205 Pierce. The census also states Ella had been married 8 years with no children.
