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

Hello Santos,

I called the cemetery they do have James but it was under his initials, J.H. Stranahan. I got the info you are seeking:

J.H. Stranahan - Section: C, Lot: 35, Space: 9 and I believe his wife is in Space 10. Couldn't quite understand the woman or she was unable to understand me but that is what she gave me as the location. Hope you can find it.

RE: James Hunter Stranahan
No, I do not, I was going by the death certificate that said he was buried in Mont Meta. I will call them and see if his wife is buried there. I do appreciate you trying.

Thank you so much for these photos. My grandmother, Ruth, died when I was 5, and I have never seen her headstone. My Grandfather, Claude, died many years before I was born, and he was not listed in Find A Grave. I thought I would never find him. Thank you again. You have lifted the spirits of my brother and I immeasurably.
