|Bio and Links|
I am a retired mechanic-truck driver (3516/3531) and a former Marine Veteran, May 1965-May 1971. Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Division, Vietnam DMZ 21 months May 1966-Feb 1968.|
I try to take the most legible pictures I can. I believe in recording history for future generations. This is the best way I know to HONOR and Remember the deceased. I am adding memorials from books and graveyards so others can find their friends and family members.
If you would like some one transferred to you just ask. -(USE THE EDIT TAB)- on the memorial you want transfered. Glad to do links and I will add obituaries to BIO section also. (USE THE EDIT TAB!)
If I can help you with information let me know.
Semper Fidelis Sgt. Ed Elstan
Any pictures I have added you are welcome to use them for your personal use.

Thank you very much for the SASNETT transfers that you sent to my account. Thank you for locating the graves and establishing these memorials. How could you have possibly known that I was considering asking for these transfers. This helps my family research so much. It has allowed me to connect various branches of the family that I couldn't link before. Again, thank you sir!
|Valerie Hall||RE: John Kyle Willingham|
I believe one was noted as his actual physical grave. After I left the message for you I also saw that it said the same for his wife, I think the one in Menlo GA, so maybe that is correct. Thank you for your reply.

Ed, I added a death cert for this memorial and found her husband. Enjoy!!
|Valerie Hall||Duplicate Gravesites?|
Hello, I have found a memorial for my Great x3 grandfather, John Kyle Willingham, that look exactly alike at 2 cemeteries, and he is actually listed at 3 on this site...one is at Ami Cemetery in Menlo, GA, the one you posted at Bethsaida Baptist Church Cemetery and one is at the Poplar Springs Bapt Church cemetery here in Hiram, GA where many other family members are buried. Are some of these possibly just markers with no actual person buried there? The marker at Menlo GA does not show the rank of Private, but otherwise is identical to the one at Bethsaida. I am completely confused. Thanks for any help you can offer.
