Lieutenant Frank Weber, 32nd Indiana
By Michael A. Peake

Twenty-five year-old Indianapolis Turner Francis Weber arrived at Camp Willich in September 1861 to be enrolled by Captain Erdelmeyer into the Turner Company as a corporal. With the attrition following Stones River, Weber was promoted from the ranks to 2nd Lieutenant of Company “B,” while the regiment wintered at Murfreesboro prior to the June 1863 Tullahoma Campaign. Two weeks before the battle of Chickamauga he was assigned as 1st Lieutenant of Company ”D,” a position Weber held until mustering out in September 1864. He returned to Indianapolis after the war to live out his life, dieing May 9, 1916. Weber is buried in Section 39, Lot #213 at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis.
