Bio Photo 'The unexamined life is not worth living'.


The memorials that I have created here on Find A Grave are those of my family, only. I do not list grave locations of strangers.

Please do not 'lift' 'copy' or take or steal any of my personal photos from my memorials, as they are copyrighted by me. Please do not add additional photos of any sort to my families memorials without my permission.

The headstone and monument photos that I have added to Evergreen, Olivewood, and Riverside National Cemeteries, are yours to take and add to your trees, as this is the sole purpose of my documenting these cemeteries, only to help others.

'And how can the dead, be truly dead, when they live on in the souls of those who are left behind?'

Lorenzo Scarpello
I photographed Lorenzo Scarpello's gravestone in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Omaha. Unfortunately it doesn't have an inscription. I know it's his marker because he's buried in Section M, Block 4, Row West, Grave 46 and the marker I photographed is between Maria Bonacci's (Grave 45) and Elizabeth Rooney's (Grave 47).

Relationship to Sean Ford?
Was doing some research and saw your profile. You aren't related to Sean Ford here in central California are you? Would be a funny coincidence. Found your comments on Lon Mason's page researching McCulloch's.

Lampton Tucker
Hi Bridgette,

I removed Lambert, but left Happy & Lampton as his parents. This was definitely a hard one to trace and it's been a long time since I focused on it, and I wish I had more info. Let me know if it looks okay now.
Thanks, Susanne

RE: Claude Cochran
Thank you for taking and posting the picture of my ancestors grave marker. Yes, Andrew is indeed Claude's brother and I have setup his memorial and made the photo request. Also could you see if Andrew's wife Ethel R Cochran is buried there also. Don't know her maiden name or death date.

Thank you again.

Beld Family
Thank you very much for taking and posting the tombstone photos of the Beld family for me. I'm researching one of Don's quilts for the International Quilt Center and Museum in Lincoln, NE.

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
