Under the "EDIT" key: You can Suggest a correction or provide additional information for any entry that I have made. Please send over the Parents and Spouse links on this also. You can also ask for a transfer under the EDIT key, then I have your ID # and can easily do the transfer for you.

I would be happy to transfer ownership of a record that I have added, if they are family and you have more information that you would like to add.

Thank you for all the flowers and notes that have been added to the memorials that I have posted.

RE: Find a Grave 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 Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_byline_sr_book_1?ie=UTF8&text=Mrs.+Jennifer+Thompson&search-alias=books&field-author=Mrs.+Jennifer+Thompson&sort=relevancerank

RE: Margaret E. Curtis Rubottom Photo
You are very welcome! Glad that I could help.
Was on vacation, passing thru the area and wanted to see were some of my ancestors were buried. The Phone app showed your request and I remembered seeing the name, so it was super easy to take a picture and post. This was my first time posting to Find a Grave. I hope it worked out. I do know that in the future, when making a special trip to search, I will remember to bring some materials (paper and pencil and sharpener) to make rubbings of the head stones for some that are badly weathered.

Again, glad I could help!

I couldn't find anyway to add the number of the image you talked about, but you can add the image to the entry from the way I understand it.

Minnie Behrend / Carl Behrend
Cheryl - this is great information! My grandmother was Carl and Minnie Behrend's granddaughter, born to son LEWIS BEHREND and his wife Louise Behrend. She attended St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Dorans IL, then transferred to St John's Lutheran Church in Mattoon before she married my grandfather and moved to Charleston IL. I've been trying to connect all of the Behrend descendents. Have you had any luck in finding their immigration records?

Is there any way for you to send me a clearer photo of a headstone photo you took? Elizabeth Robbins in Linden Cemetery in Florida. I'd like to be able to see the dates better as there is a dispute on my end I'm trying to clear up. Thank you.

Mistake on my part
Hattie Dittamore Metheny, her name was Harriet ESTELLA Dittamore. I am so sorry. Her nick name was Hattie. If you are family, I have the almost complete tree of the Dittamore/Dittemore family. There are several grandfathers who served in the REV WAR and countless others that have military records. 90% of the family uses Dittemore.

Thank you for providing the death location for my great uncle who is buried at Edinburg Cemetery, Christian Co, Illinois. Can you please tell me your source for this information so that I can add it to my family tree?

I can see that you are very active with F/A/G. I appreciate all your good work that is so beneficial to family historians.
