Duplicate memorial
Greetings, and thanks for all your hard work re your many memorial! It appears that your memorial 123965078 is a duplicate of 73881189. As yours is more recent, less complete, and misspells Mary's married name, I wonder if you might want to delete your memorial or 'merge' it with the other one. Thanks for the consideration. Marmulade

RE: Sarah Hawkins
Cool! I am related through the Comer family.

Yes, it was a mess and still is. Maybe together we can straighten this out. They listed Wright being a maiden name in the middle name box so you can't search for her that way. I did send a couple edits.

But keep watch please, so we can straighten it out.

I want to ask this other person:
"Do you know what you're doing, and Don't you check your work when completed?"

RE: Sarah Hawkins
Did you see someone got the relationship boxes for parents all mixed up? One gal was shown to have 4 spouses....2 women and 2 men. Go figure! I believe I saw your same pic on two different listings. Since the inscription is aged and mossy, it's difficult to read. An etching might clear it up. These families are intertwined.

Please advise. Are you able to return for Sarah's etching or shall I make a request?

Thank you for all you do.

Happy Saturday!

Sarah Wright Hawkins
Hello there.....

I found duplicates with this gal. She was listed under two separate surnames, that's why the confusion.

You have a picture of her gravestone. Can you transfer it over to Sarah Wright in Earlham Cemetery, Indiana? Their date comes before the other listing found under Hawkins...

I'm confusing my self here but the one created by Joseph Smith in 2012, did have an unknown burial....but he has added her parents and each of her siblings. It looks as though Nathan Hawkins, her husband is in process.

Please check it out...Can we do this? I did find one of these gals was married to two women, by there is some cleaning up that needs to be done within this family.

Thank you so much
M. Comer

RE: 8th Indiana graves & Thomas W. Coffin
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

Hutchens tombstone pictures
I am writing you to ask permission to use the tombstone picture from the memorial of John Hutchens and Janetta Sparks Hutchens in my family history. I will give you credit for the picture.
Thank you for all the work you do on Find A Grave.
