The three volume set of books titled, "Biographical Memoirs of Greene County, Indiana; With Reminiscences of Pioneer Days - Illustrated," B. F. Bowen & Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, 1908. It is a HUGH set of books dealing with the pioneer and ca. 1908 residents of Greene County. It is absolutely filled with genealogical and personal information about various Greene County personalities. It has many illustrations of individuals. The biographical memoirs for each major individual covers 3 - 6 pages on average. Incidental mention of many people not listed below also occurs in the memoirs and County data pages. It describes the various Indiana Civil War regiments in an article by one of their Commanders, Col. E. H. C. Cavins. The three books contain approximately 1,323 pages plus many illustrations and photographs. Please note: This is not a paper book, it is a scan of the original paper book into the digital Adobe PDF format, written on a CD-ROM.
