Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired mechanic-truck driver and a former Marine Veteran, 1965-1969. Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Division, Vietnam DMZ 2 tours 1966-1968.
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 (friends or family) 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. (USE THE EDIT TAB!)

Semper Fidelis Sgt. Ed Elstan

Any pictures I have added you are welcome to use them for your personal use.

Ed,
There is no military marker for Rev Hollis Brigman...his wife, Florence, was my 7th grade history teacher.

Transfers
Ed,

Thanks for transferring the large number of findagrave.com memorial sites to me to manage. I hope to update them with all the correct info that they should have and link them properly to other family members so that those younger than us will have their story, if they are so inclined.

Best regards,
Gwen Darby
Atlanta
