    I think I might have written you before on find a grave. Do you have a listing of burials of the 40th Indiana Infantry? I am especially interested in the burial sites of soldiers from the regiment that died during the war. I am working on about about all of the Indiana Soldiers that died in the Civil War and am currently filling in gaps. I am also looking for pictures of soldiers that died in the war, and short stories about these men. If you have any information I would love to hear from you. Also, I have a listing of the gravesites of well over 200 men of the 40th Indiana that you might be interested in posting to your website. Let me know what you think,

      William C. Myers (Myres here) was my grandfather, and he lost an arm due to a gunshot. He didn’t lose it immediately, I gather infection set in later. He’s buried in Kingman Co., KY, and is listed on the website showing Civil War Veterans there. You can also get original copies of pension petitioner lists (widows listed, too) from William is there listing his widow (Clarissa Myers) as the petitioner.
