As I get my various family lines uploaded in separate GEDCOMS, I will add links to those relatives in them who served in the Civil War. Since both my husband and I have Civil War Veteran ancestors, we have great interest in this war. My husband has a large selection of books he has purchased over the year on the subject.
Those who served in Indiana
- First is my third Great Grandfather, John Clark, who served with the 35th Regiment Indiana Volunteers. I have sent for and received copies of his military papers, and of his wife's Civil War widow's pension file. The widow's file was very think and very informative!
- John Clark's brother Caleb Clark also served in this war. He was in Co. K of 44th Regiment Indiana Infantry. He would be my third great granduncle. He returned from the War alive, married and had two children that I know of.

- Joseph Zimmerman who was my 3rd Great Granduncle enlisted in Co H 21st Regt. O. V. I. and after his discharge he re-enlisted, and this time he was assigned to Co B 57th Regt. O.V.I. This proved to be a fatal decision as he died at the Battle of Shilo in Tennessee
