Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Dush (Dutch) Kapelet grave
Hello Sgt. Ed:

The family is in the process of having a bronze military marker put on Dutch's grave. I'm hoping that a photo of him can be put on this site as well. Thanks for your help.

Joann (Peppy) Duff (Dutch's sister)

Yellow dirt
I noticed that you listed some graves at Yellow Dirt. I think but not sure my 2x great grandfather may be buried there but not listed. There also may be a daughter. His name was Peter Nestlehutt. He was born in France and according to the census had a farm in Heard County. His wife and several more family members are buried at New Lebanon Coweta County. He was a Confederate Soldier. Lot of unanswered questions on him. His family moves to Indiana. He marries Mary Ellen Mitchell there.
-9 August 1860 Heard County, Georgia Peter Nesttehutt 35 France
Mary Nesttehutt 27
Susan Nesttehutt 10
Frances Nesttehutt 9
Sarah Nesttehutt 8
William Nesttehutt 6
Harris Nesttehutt 3
Martha L Nesttehutt 5m
Another question why would a man in Heard County wind up in H Company 61 Alabama? He would have died before the Church stated? He is listed on the 1870 Morality census as death of oct 1869.
