Newsletter Subtitle:INDEX TO REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS IN INDIANA
Month Day Year January 25, 2011.
This is something new to us, please read carefully!
Shipping/handling remains at $5 per your total order placed at one time with payment by charge card or check. Most small orders for a paper bound, 8½" by 11" book or two, the mini-binder or maps,
wall charts, forms, Christmas Cards, etc. are sent Priority Mail which costs $4.95. We really want to ship your packages to you quickly and safely. This will help us get the job done with a minimum of risk of failure.
Delivery Confirmation will be added to every package, at my expense, no charge to you. This costs me an additional 80 cents, but it is my proof that your package was accepted by the Post Office for delivery.
Now the obligation to deliver the package shifts to the Post Office. If you do not receive your order within two weeks from your date of order, you should call us for the tracking number which was placed
on your package here before we mailed it. I will have in my file the tracking number which is used by the Post Office to locate your package, wherever it might be, if you do not receive it on time. Once you have the Tracking Number your package can be traced through
the Post Office Website or you can visit your local Post Office and ask them to track it for you with the numbers that are on the slip which I can give you over the phone.
The Post Office does not replace your package or pay you for what
has been lost by them unless you insure the package with them at your cost at the time of mailing. If you wish to add the insurance, we will handle the placement of proper insurance on your mail at the
time of mailing and add to your charge only the extra amount we prepaid for the insurance.
We need to know your wishes when you order your books. To insure, or not to insure! Ah, yes, that is the question!
The Post Office charges insurance on a sliding scale for insuring packages. Their scale begins with [for up to one hundred dollars insurance their price is $2.25], then the price increases by the number of hundreds your package contains. If you wish to insure a $25, or $48, or $96 book it will cost the minimum fee of $2.25 and your package will be insured for $25 or $48 or $96. You will be insured for the exact value of the merchandise in your package.
Since the Post Office has insured that package for the exact cost of
the merchandise in the package, we can collect the insurance from
the Post Office when they agree they have lost it and pay us, and
then the choice, again is yours.
We can refund the money they paid us which is yours because you paid the insurance or we can usually replace the materials that were
in the package for you provided we have additional stock of the items you ordered. Should we not have those items left in stock after we have sold them to you and shipped them, as is usually the case with the CRAZY CRATE BOOKS, we can only refund your money for the materials after we collect from the Post Office.
Wow! Life is indeed getting curiouser and curiouser!

NEWS ABOUT A BRAND NEW VENTURE!
We have been experimenting with some alternative e-mails which will be coming on a different day than Tuesday or Friday, so if you see a different e-mail on a different day, and it still says YE OLDE GENEALOGIE SHOPPE; don't be afraid to open it and check it out for several different categories of books we are considering marketing in this way. If those marketing ideas turn out to work for you, we will give you a separate address to sign up for them by about the first of June. Just watch for something a little different on a different day! Order if you like! Delete if you don't!
MORE NEWS FOR THE MINI-BINDER LOVERS OUT THERE!
Also coming soon, about February 14th, this year, we will be presenting our popular little mini-binders in two new and different colors as well as the popular Pretty Parchment and Tuxedo Black, which are currently out of stock, and the Candy Apple Red, Marine Blue, Kelly Green, Pecan Brown which we will continue to have, and have now and will continue to have after February 14, 2011. I finally found a new source for the binders, and was able to find the two new colors of Beautiful Burgundy and Smoky Gray. I have always wanted to have eight colors, one you can select for each of your great-grandparents. Then as you continue to need additional binders, you can stay with the same colors for each line. Divide and conquer
works in warfare, politics, and for those of us doing genealogy!
By the way, someone asked me how many binders did one person need? You need one for yourself, each binder covers five generations of your lineage, and you can buy a package of fillers of the Family Group sheets for only $5 to do brothers and sisters or aunts and uncles.
I quickly branched out by buying four binders, in addition, so I could start filling one out for each of my grandparents - the Wade Family, the Gann Family, the Van Treese Family and the McClure family. After that you can expand your research any time you get too many sheets for your original binders to hold. You just transfer the one family name that is the most numerous out of your original binder, put the blank sheets from your new binder back in your old binder, and now
it is ready to grow again with some breathing room and blank family group sheets to spare.
The family group sheets that took up the most room in your old binder, now you can move to the new binder, so they have room to grow in the new binder, and if you have extra family group sheets
left over, you can move the extra blank family group sheets to each
of your other binders so they can grow too!
You can add one for your spouse, if you are lucky enough to have a spouse, who indulges you or, even better, shares with you, this intense adventure into the past called genealogy! Our record holder over the last twenty years has bought 114 of these binders and her research now covers hundreds of families.
Ray and I picked up this hobby because after 20 years, 9 months and 17 days of his Army life, he didn't know what to do with all the time left over after a forty-hour work week was over.
My brother had been working on the Van Treese line ever since he
was a sophomore in high school and his teacher had assigned a research paper, a five generation lineage chart in genealogy. You know how it is with this hobby--once started, you never really give it up. You may set it aside for a while, during the busy child-raising, or frantic teen-age-corralling years which are so occupying of your time, but the interest in it never really goes away.
We genealogists must be gluttons for punishment! Every time we
find a new ancestor, we just doubled our work load, because he or
she has a mother and a father we don't know!
Now with nine vibrant colors of mini-binders we can establish a color for each of our great grandparents. The Tuxedo Black and the Smoky Gray make a nice set, and so do the Pretty Parchment and the Pecan Brown. The Candy Apple Red and the New Forest Green remind me of Christmas and the Marne Blue and the Beautiful Burgundy are simply stunning together. We kept the Kelly Green too, because our Irish families deserve their own color. They all look really good together, too. You have enough family group sheets to do five generations in
each binder so you can just expand your color scheme as you find the records. And they will still be priced at just $20!
This next book took over two full days to abstract the index and write up. I hope you find it was worth it for you! I found information on three of my lines to be checked out in the near future.
IN - CRAZY CRATE YOGS 84 BOOK 1: INDEX TO REVOLTIONARY SOLDIERS OF INDIANA AND OTHER PATRIOTS. By Barbara Schull Wolfe. Published by YOGS Heritage House. [That's us!] ©1983. 143 pages, cardstock covers, plastic velobind process binding. This book is an index to thirteen different publications that had lists of Revolutionary Soldiers in them. But it is much more than just an index. By bringing all these military men's names from their diverse reasons for being listed, she has assembled the greatest list to help genealogists find, in Indiana materials, their own Revolutionary Soldier, War of 1812 Soldier or Soldier in the Old Indian Wars.
The 13 lists used were as follows with their codes as used in the book:
A.) - Pensions Under the Act of Congress, passed 3-18-1818.
B.) - Persons Residing in Indiana Who Received Benefit of the Act of Congress, passed 5-15-1828.
C.) - Persons Residing In Indiana Who Have Been Inscribed on the Pension List under Act of Congress, passed 7-7-1832.
D.) - 1835 list of Revolutionary Soldiers, War of 1812 and Indian War Soldier's Pensions.
E.) - Eagan, Mrs. Thomas Martin Eagan's 1975-1976: Volume 1 - A Roster of Revolutionary Ancestors of the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution [DAR]. July 4, 1976 - Unigraphic Press.
F.) - Indiana Widow's Pension Act. July 4, 1836. (1831-1863) Third Auditors Office: Volume Number "N" and "O".
G.) Indiana 1840 List of Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Indian Wars Pensions.
01.) O'Byrne, Mrs. Roscoe C. - Roster of Soldiers and Patriots of the American Revolution Buried in Indiana, Volume 1.
02 - Roster of Soldiers and Patriots of the American Revolution Buried in Indiana, Volume 2.
R.) Rejected or Suspended Applications for Revolutionary War Pensions. GPC, Baltimore, MD.
V.) Indiana Magazine of History (also includes the volume number.)
W1.) - Waters, Margaret R. - Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Indiana (1949).
W2.) - Waters, Margaret R. - Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Indiana - Volume 2.
All of these sources list more, and some list much more, data than this book shows! But this is your key to finding their records!
Each one of these listings varies somewhat in content. All three of the lists are, in general terms, semi-alphabetical in nature, such as the seven-page list from the Indiana Pioneers which also lists the year of his birth and the state and/or country, if known. [250 persons listed.]
The second listing from Mrs. Eagan's book, a Roster of Revolutionary Ancestors of the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution, runs five pages in length and is also alphabetical in nature and contains the county of residence and the publication number and page number of their sketch. [222 persons listed.]
It is unclear whether these first thirteen pages are included in the numbered 130 pages which form the third part which follows, but I have not included the first two lists separately in the following abstract of the last 130 pages. In this third part, "most all" of the As are together, then all the Bs are together, then the Cs, etc through to the Zs. But sometimes they are not alphabetically arranged properly within that group.
It is plain that there is an overlap in these three lists as there well could be, if that person was an early immigrant to Indiana, had also served in one of these wars, then applied for and received a pension, and/or was buried in Indiana. If his wife did apply for the widow's pension in Indiana, she would be listed only in the last third index.
The last list runs 130 pages with approximately 34 entries on each page for a grand total of a little over 1, 100 names of soldiers and patriots and their widows. This number is diminished only by the fact that someone's name could appear on several of these lists, and therefore, his name would appear several times on this list.. This last listing includes more details than either of the others. Basic information on this last list is surname, first name, county of residence, and the code to be used to find the name on the actual list, referenced above in the original list, but this last part has many additional remarks for most, but not all, of the people on the list. This additional information is appended to the listing of the names, such as their age-age 71 or age 86.Once in a while, but not often their rank is stated [Sgt.] as listed.
Several of these listings have two surnames listed as if two spellings occured in the original abstracts, or the writing was very difficult to read, such as Acre-Acckerin, Garneston-Garretson, or Leftyear-Leftter or Pruitt-Prewitt or True-True. Very helpful, especially in cases such as Alkins-Elkins, where the spellings are quite different, but fortunately listed under both names separately.
In cases where a widow's pension is involved, and the originals of these, I have found to be just full of personal family matters, they often have details on the children and both the soldier's name and his wife's maiden name are listed in the index under both of their names alphabetically. If a woman's name is listed, the entry may be started and filed by the soldier's name, followed by her name and [w[idow] of his first name such as: Adams, Sarah w/o Aaron OR it could be listed as Adams, Aaron and wife Sarah (Hard) Johnson.Or he, then, could be listed as Alexander, John, husband of Susanna K. Alexander. Or, the widow might be listed simply as Nancy Bird, w/o Larkin Bird.
In cases where the pension is for the care of minor children, the children will be listed such as: Armstrong, Walter and William Irvine, children of William Armstrong. Very helpful as in the case of the
children [the heirs of] America and Marshall Blake who were listed as Barrillia, Sidney, America, Indiana.
In the case of an aged or disable soldier no longer living in his own home, the following is a likely addition to his name such as: Alexander, John, age 84, living with Thomas Alexander. Even more helpful would be Armstrong, Isaac living with Crawford Tuggle.
Occasionally, but maybe not always, a soldier will be listed with the notation: War of 1812, or not Revolutionary War.
Or several are listed with this information - Babcock, Sherman, died in Knox Co., Missouri.
Once in a while you could get more, such as: Bartholomew, Joseph, Indian War, d[ied] in Illinois. Some notations give you a new place to look, such as: transferred to Ohio or another state to receive his pension through that state in the future.
Check it out: Coat, Abraham - formerly husband of Loasa Davis? [I cannot say without looking at the actual document, but this might be a remarried widow still entitled to receive a pension, perhaps, for minor children? There are several of these. [Currently, should a widow remarry, she can not continue to receive a pension under her husband's account, except in certain circumstances, such as, minor children of the soldier living with the remarried former widow of that soldier. However, should her new husband divorce her or die, she can reapply under the original husband's account for her pension to be reinstated.
In the following index are all of the surnames that have two or more first names with the actual numbers of first names listed: Abbott 3, Abney 2, Achea(e/s) 2, Acre/s 3, Adams 9, Adamson 2, Ad(air/are) 2, Adkins 2, Akers 3, Alcorn 2, Aldridge 6, Alexander 16, Alisla 2, Allen 10, Alley 4, Allison 2, Almon 2, Alvey 2, Alvis 2, Amburn 2, Anderson 5, Andrews 3, Angevin/e 2, Applegate 6, Arbuckle 4, Archer 2, Armstrong 10, Arnold 4, Arthur 2, Ashbrook 2, Asher 3, Atki(n)son 2, Aughe 2,

I will tell you, in summary, I have never regretted pursuing the pension papers of my soldier or naval ancestor's military service.
They have always been most satisfying and elucidating, filling my genealogy with facts not found anywhere else in my searching. But the ones which tell me the most are the widow's pension papers which had to be reaffirmed that no new marriage had occurred in the past five years. The Widow had to list information on the status of the family and prove she was who she said she was in order to qualify. For the widows in this book, they were required to report any such marriage when it happened and they lost their pension when that marriage was recorded.
For those of you that don't watch The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel "elucidate" is one of the words-of-the-day that he gives to his listeners to painlessly stretch our vocabularies. Hear it, look it up, use it in your conversation ten times in the next week and it will be yours forever. Elucidate means [to make lucid especially by explanation or analysis.] He does a lot of that! I hope to "emulate" him [to strive to equal or excel; to imitate: to equal or approach equality] in bringing the good news of all these pension papers to you, help you to find them and use them. They will enrich your genealogy. NEW BOOKS, NOT USED. PRICE: $18.
Now for the above list, I did not list any surname for which there was only one first name, so I am going to risk flooding my e-mail and telephone lines by offering this service! If you have reason to believe that you have an ancestor that might have served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, or the Indian Wars, I don't want you to miss out on these papers, so if you call me, [Please don't call on my 1-800-419-0200 number because that costs me 5 cents a minute extra money.] Please call on my 317-862-3330 line and I will check the book for your surname at no cost to you because you are a newsletter subscriber, and I want to help you become a more efficient, more focused, and more successful genealogist!
You can either buy the book, call me, or go to the library and look up all thirteen of these lists, if they even have them, to see if your surname is there! Remember these are Federal Pensions with the distribution handled by the states. This book covers only Indiana people who received federal pensions while living in Indiana. Recent reprinting on most of these copies. PRICE: $18
This book took two full days to do andmost all of Monday to proof and get to Constant Contact. But after you get a look at it, I will add this document to my website, so the world can check it out. I hate to buy a genealogy book, sight unseen, because even if it is from my county, it may not have a single reference that would apply to my families.
This way you can be sure something is going to benefit the surname you are searching. Helping genealogists IS what we do here! Thanks for reading our newsletters! Pat from YOGS
