|Bio and Links|
I enjoy history, and learning about how people migrated and settled this land, and just generally getting out and exploring. I like to bike and hike, and I consider it a nice rounded day when I enjoy a little botany, some geology, maybe cross a historic bridge and then visit a cemetery. I hope the memorials and photographs I post help families connect. I hope others are doing the same for my ancestors in the distant places I am unable to visit. I'm always happy to share photos for genealogical use (not-for-profit).|
When contacting me about a SPECIFIC MEMORIAL – please use the EDIT button on the memorial. When you do this, it emails me a direct link to the memorial, and it makes it so EASY to make corrections or add additional information. When posted to my profile page, I have a hard time figuring out which memorial you are writing about. As I tell folks in my office, when faced with multiple requests, I usually go for the easiest one to fulfill first – so if it's important to you, make it easy for me.
NOTE/DISCLAIMER. I travel some for work, have occasional health disruptions, have similar computer disruptions, so sometimes, I'm slow to act/respond. Sometimes I'm just chasing another interest/life pursuit. Please be patient, and, I don't mind reminders at all. Sometimes, I make typos too. Just send me an EDIT note and forgive my clumsy keyboarding.

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
Mark maybe you can help me find a family friend.
I am looking for the Waldinger family.
Natalie, Daughter of Paul, mother of Carol Ann buried in Flushing Queens somewhere.
I was at Carol's and Paul's wedding. I grew up with Carol.
Because I was in the military and moved around so much, I lost track of the family but I did hear from Paul some time ago. He called me to tell me of Carol's passing. That was before the daughter died. I am a member of findagrave and have created a few memorial pages of friends and family. I would like to add the Waldinger family to my memorial pages.
Can you help me find them and if I may also request a photo of their grave stones.
I would appreciate anything you can do to help. I wish I could supply more information but I seem to be limited to find any information besides Natalie, on the web. I would appreciate your assistance.

Hi Mark - she is my 2xg-grandmother. You previously transferred her husband, Enoch Bland Dolly, to me. Would you please transfer Anna also - Memorial #43244866. Several years ago I inherited a quilt that she made in the 1850s in Virginia, and last year I unexpectedly inherited an oil portrait of her done when she was a very young woman. Thank you for all that you do -- I post headstones and memorials when I can. My Contributor number is 47391575.

Thanks for the quick acceptance of my recent edits.

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published.

Mark I want to thank you so very much for the transfer of my Yankee ancestors, and for your valuable and generous contributions to Find a Grave. For most of us, finding our family and ancestors is like finding hidden treasures. I'm going to work on these memorials this weekend. Kindest Regards, Nancy Yankie
Thank you for transferring my uncle's Find-a-Grave page to me.
I have submitted an update for Oliver Sherman Cree's first wife. (Oliver - 59190355 ). Somehow Find a grave has changed and doesn't email updates. The just add it to you tools bar. Could you please add link to his first wife Nellie Blanche Molleson Cree Masterson (Find A Grave Memorial# 65774037). Thank you for all your work on find a grave.
Oliver Sherman Cree married Nellie Blanche Molleson Feb. 20, 1895 in Springhill, Kansas. He married Luella May Cutting Mar. 18, 1921 in La Junta City, Colorado.

I was overlooking some of the information that you have added for the Feo Family and Fred Feo is full blooded brother and son to both Patsy and Angelina Feo. I would also love to know where you have gotten your resources at.

Mark, I have submitted a request to change first name to Samantha via edit request but need to explain. I have examined the tombstone in detail and am fairly certain my name is correct based on info from 1880 census film # 1254713. Sister shows as Sycha which matches a grave site in Scott. Birthdate is somewhat close but mother and father show as Toby and John Frakes. I maintain a data base of both Scott and Moore Cemetery and am trying to get them and findagrave to match.
