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

Correction and Suggestion:
“Valinda” Crane 55198622 was the third wife (married on 26 Dec 1891 in Cassopolis, MI) of my maternal great-grandfather George Andrew Crane 48100280 (he was twice widowed). He died in 1911 in Fort Collins, CO and is buried there in Grandview Cemetery. After his death, she came to San Diego to live near his son (Frank Crane, my grandfather).

Note that both the Find-a-Grave (“Valinda”) and cemetery (“Velinda”) listings of her given name are in error; it should be spelled “Vilinda.” Her maiden name was Dever and her previous married name was Mcguin. She was married twice too but I don’t know what her first married name was.

The reason for her GAR status would appear to be because George served with Co. F, 21st Michigan Infantry during the Civil War.

Please don’t take the following comments wrong. I most certainly appreciate the time, effort, and service you have provided us by taking photographs and documenting various gravesites. This is meant as a suggestion, not a criticism and certainly not a discouragement. The problem is that if you look at the photograph you took of Vilinda’s flat headstone, you’ll see that it is shot from such a perspective that none of the stone’s details are visible. I don’t know what the particular circumstances at the time this photograph was taken were, but in the future it would probably be better appreciated by searchers if you could get a full view downward shot of stones in this orientation.

Transfer request for James Farr, etc
Might I convince you to transfer James, Dora Farr and Wilbur Grimsby to me?

They are, respectively, my great-grandfather, great-grandmother, and my great-uncle.

Thanks in advance!

Betty and her husband "Doc" were close family friends who were like an aunt and uncle to our family. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me? Thank you so much.

Great story in Washington Post April 4th issue about those whose served in WW I - these 2 did. Shed some light on the horrors of war. These folks should never be forgotten.

Hi Linda,

I made some additions to the information for Earl and Charlotte Lutz. Charlotte is my grandfather's sister. Earl's birth year is shown in the Ohio births and christenings as 1887.
