RE: Use of 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

George Hyatt Nye. thank you for the photo of him on the memorial. I was thinking that only a relative would have such a great photo, but maybe it came out of a history written about him?

Are you a relative of his? I descend from Caleb Nye b. 1787, a brother to Elisha Nye b. 1782.

If you are a descendant it would be great to communicate.

RE: John Maxim #106032236
The birth spelling as found in the Vital Records for Carver, MA (tan series of books published by the various towns in Massachusetts) takes precedent and is considered to be primary evidence over a tombstone record of death since it is considered to be secondary evidence and not primary evidence of a name. It only becomes primary when there is no other evidence that is primary.

Therefore, the name at birth, which was Muxam should be used. The Maxim spelling can be entered as a nickname if you wish to show both spellings.

This is the entry on page 47 of the above reference citation and it reads as follows:

John Muxam, ch. John (Muxham) and Martha, Jan. 24, 1795. [Muxham, C.R. 1.] [Maxim [h. Susannah (Pratt), h. Ellen (Pratt), h. Sarah P. (Mulford) Reed, h. Sarah (Custus) Lawrence] CG.R.4.}.]

This same spelling of the surname was applicable to the other 8 siblings of John, he being the last born.

75181643 Experience Peirce/Pierce
Hello Sandra, I too have an Experience Pierce in my tree. My 4th great grandmother was born in 1682 and married Samuel Wheaton. I find that our Experiences are being confused on the public trees on Ancestry, so did some research. Your Experience's maiden name is actually spelled Peirce, not Pierce, in the records. I searched for John Atwood, and for Experience, and found two of the hand written records that spelled it Peirce.
I'm suggesting that it would be helpful, and more accurate, to spell your lady as Experience Peirce.
Thank you. 46903791
