Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: To anyone who had EDITS suggested for me in the last few months, please re-submit them. I accidentally deleted them. So, please re-submit, and I will put them into effect. Thanks!

Hello, my name is Karl Stelly. I'm 60 years old, and I'm originally from Lafayette, Louisiana. I've lived in Baytown, Texas, Tulare, California, Great Falls, Montana, Killeen, Texas, Manassas, Virginia, and Louisville, Kentucky. I moved to Gettysburg with my fiance about 9 years ago. I enjoy roaming the battlefield and photography, and studying the history of Gettysburg and the Civil War. I have quite a few photographs of Gettysburg and other Civil War battlefields and other historic sites posted on Google Earth. I use the name "Seven Stars" on Panoramio and Google Earth. If you see photos there by "Seven Stars," that's me!

Sgt William Marion Patton, Gettysburg
Please disregard previous message as I see his stone is incorrect. I guess his little fib was in his official military records and is now forever engraved.

Sgt William Marion Patton, Gettysburg
Could you please edit the birthdate on this page. The year should be 1895 instead of 1891. I believe he may have added a couple of years when he first enlisted in the Marines.

Thank you.

His granddaughter,

Nancy Patton

Pvt Joseph W Tucker

May I use the photo of his gravestone in Gettysburg for my tree on Ancestry? I will of course give you credit, and where to find it.

Thank you for all that you do for our veterans.

RE: Private Andrew J. Yaw
Thanks so much for finding that duplicate! Unfortunately the manager of that duplicate site is listed as "inactive" so am not able to contact him.
I did add your info for Andrew, and have asked findagrave for permission to use the grave photo on my site.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Clarke Scripture
I'm looking at photo requests in Old Willington Hill Cemetery Willington CT and don't see him in my cemetery listings. There are several Scriptures you know if he is "son of" or "husband of"...or have approximate years that he lived I can see if he is buried near a close relative?? I noticed that there were GPS location numbers for him..but I don't have the equipment to use it.
