Bio Photo I will transfer almost all of my Hartford City, Indiana memorials. Send me a request using the edit button. When I lived by that cemetery, I tried to get as many of those graves online for family to find them. I now live in southeast Ohio.

I am researching my family (Warner/Hardman/Clark/Klinger/Norris/Cook/McKrill/Bowen/Beihold/Henline/Wolf)and it has taken me in the past to several Indiana cemeteries in Wabash, Kosciusko, Whitley, Wells, Adams, and Allen counties to find tombstones. Now checking out Ohio cemeteries to find my husband's family, and some of mine who came from Ohio to Indiana.

Not all my memorials are family. I took tombstone pictures of some people who just happen to be buried in the same cemeteries as my relatives.

Thanks to all who have helped me find my relatives. It's much appreciated!

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

Frazier Family
Hello I was hoping you could help me. I noticed you left flowers and a note for two of my grandfathers Harry LeRoy and William Frazier and you referred to them as distant cousins of your husband. I have been researching our Frazier's for many years now. I go from Harry to William to David to David to Samuel to the original David from the Marsh Creek Settlement Manor of the Maske now Gettysburg Pennsylvania. I have no idea how David arrived there but do know his son Samuel was born there, since you said my family members were distant cousins do you happen to know where your family came from country of origin, if indeed they were cousins to all the Frazier's in the lineage I mentioned and don't branch off to a wives side of the family that isn't a Frazier. Thank you ever so much for any direction you may be able to offer. Rebecca L Simpson.

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. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?
