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.

thanks for your help on her dob... it was going to be hard for me to get that because her family wasn't close and she was an in-law for my family. (and her close relations that would know that are all gone).

You must have gotten that info from a death certificate? How would I be able to find this info? Thanks for your help!

Terrell Article
Thanks Ed for the article, Mr roper writes quite a story here, reminds me greatly of growing up my Granddads farm in Carrollton, Ga. However, I know about the area he talks about here, but am not knowledgeable about this set of Terrell's. I have very good records of the Terrell family back to my 5th GGrand father, but these folks don't jar any bells.

I did download the article for references, and it just being a great article, again thanks for it.
