    Seeking information on Christian Boss who died on Steamboat Sultana

    Patricia Johnson Newbie

      Need service record for Christian Boss (1839-1865), from Elkhart IN, and served in Co I 44th Indiana.  Was captured and sent to Andersonville.  He was released at the end of the Civil War.  He was on the Sultana when it exploded in April 1865.  Would like to place a government memorial marker in the veterans section of Grace Lawn Cemetery (Elkhart IN). I do not believe Christian was married.  I believe he may have been the son of Christian and Anna Boss (who are buried in Grace Lawn) and the brother of J.K. Boss, also buried in Grace Lawn.
