The basic sourcebook on Revolutionary veterans who happened to die in Indiana, this work lists about 785 soldiers buried in Indiana, with service records and extensive genealogical and biographical data. It also contains information on a further 352 soldiers who had lived in Indiana and either moved to or died in other states. Published as two volumes in one, both the original volume and the 1954 supplement are arranged alphabetically, and each is followed by a full index at the back. Mrs. Waters' compilation augments "Roster of Soldiers and Patriots Buried in Indiana," edited by Mrs. Roscoe C. O'Byrne and published under the auspices of the Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution in 1938. Among the sources consulted by Mrs. Waters was the Veterans' Graves Registration, an Indiana American Legion project which attempted to list the burial place of every veteran in Indiana as of 1940 as derived from soldiers' burial claims, section lists, cemetery record books, county rosters, undertakers' records, flags, government markers, etc.
