Burials of Revolutionary War Veterans in Indiana

Submitted by Meredith Thompson

This index was extracted from a series of 22 rolls of National Archives microfilm, titled "Headstones provided for deceased Union Civil War Veterans, ca. 1879 - ca. 1903". Contrary to the microfilm's title, it covers more than the Civil War. Data was extracted on those veterans who were buried in Indiana. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list of all the Revolutionary War veterans who are buried in Indiana.

BACKGROUND: In 1879, Congress passed a law providing for the federal government to pay for tombstones for Union soldiers who were buried in private cemeteries. In some cases, the application for a tombstone was made many years after the death had occurred.
