Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern Indiana and am very interested in the Civil War. One of my hobbies is to visit the graves of Indiana Civil War Soldiers. To date, my dad and I have visited over 1,960 cemeteries and have found the grave sites of over 37,370 Indiana Soldiers, as well as some 9,000 soldiers from states other than Indiana. We have also located the grave sites of over 1,700 Confederate soldiers buried in the Hoosier state. I am also trying to find the grave sites of all of Indiana's Civil War Colonels. I am also interested in the 8th Indiana Infantry, Company I, and the 12th Indiana Infantry. I am also looking for every Chaplain that served in an Indiana Regiment in the Civil War. If you know of any grave sites you think I may have missed, or have some interesting information, don't hesitate to contact me. I am also working on a book about Indiana's soldiers that died during the Civil War. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if you are looking for a Hoosier that served in the civil war send me an e-mail and I'll see if I can help in any way. Currently, I'm also trying to locate every Civil War veteran in Kosciusko County, Indiana, and upload them to Find-A-Grave. I am also a Christian, and look forward to life after the grave. Thanks.

Indiana Civil War
I don't Know where he might fit, but I would like you to look at this page for Eli McCarty. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/McCarty-1922. He is buried in Ebenezer Cemetery in Daviess Co Indiana (see Find a Grave)

Also 3 Alford brothers from the same family were killed in the civil War from Daviess County, If you go to Indianahistory.org there are some papers available on the Internet about the brothers. They are all buried in the Alfordsville Cemetery. (See Find a Grave)

Lastly, I am wondering if James O'Dell, again from Daviess Co Indiana died in the Civil War. His wife,
Nancy applied for a widow's pension in Dec 1866. do you know of a James O' Dell who served from Daviess County?

Thanks,
Deena

RE: Henry Flowers
HI Eric,

You are right I hate to see the civil war markers being taken over by nature and most times at the neglect of the township trustee. I know of 6 other military markers in that cemetery that is in the same shape and some I could not get to it is so took over.

Have a great day

Dave

Thank you so much for your work in creating these memorials. I added the photo of him but dont think I thanked you at that time.

Pvt. Emanuel Wolf
Eric,
I wanted to thank you for your service to the veterans of the GAR, as well as the CSA boys. I recently visited Emanuel's gravesite on Memorial Day. Captured at Chickamauga, he did some hard time in prison, either Libby and/or Belle Isle in Richmond. The infirmities he suffered for the rest of his life were a direct result of his service to his country. Thank you again for putting him on this site. I have never seen the photo of a younger Emanuel before. I am going to share this tribute with my whole family.
Best regards,
Marc Bowers

Mitchell Z. Brown
Hi Eric, you posted a photo of my great-grandfather, Mitchell Z. Brown (#36431092) from the Indiana Book of Merit to his memorial page. I was curious to know if you had access to that book and what other information may be within it. I know that he earned a Silver Star, but I am not exactly sure for which action. Any information would be appreciated.
