Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 25 years and have received innumerable "helps" from so many people. I am here to return the favor, if I can. I hope to hear from you.

I have been working on building virtual cemeteries for all fallen Marines and Navy Corpsman. I have over 24,000 sites in these cemeteries. You are welcome to look at it and use any information that I have there for your own use. If you have anyone you would like me to add please let me know. Also, if you would like to transfer Marine/Corpsman sites to me I would appreciate it. Some members do not like to add information and I feel that all of the Marines/Corpsman on this site deserve to have their story told, if there is one.

Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please let me know. I'll remove it as soon as I get your note. Please notify me via the EDIT feature.

When requesting a transfer, please state your relationship and add your Find A Grave member number to your request.

Mary Ellen Ramplin
Opha May Johnson
There are erroneous dates for her birth and death recorded here.

She was born in 1879. She died in 11 Aug 1955.

She is buried in Rock Creek Cemetery, Sec. W, Lot 131, Grave 2.

Her husband is in Grave 3; her parents in Graves 4 and 5.

The information about the Marine Corps also applies to the woman buried in Grave 2.

Sadly, her grave is unmarked, something I intend to remedy.

Semper Fi.

Thank you so much for the transfer. I am going to his baby sisters funeral today, and will try to get all the family linked. I never knew where he father went, but hopefully I can find him someday.

Thank you for the bio for Derrill. I have added it to his memorial. I did omit the names of survivors, however.

Hi Bob, I deleted the dupe and moved the photos to your memorial, sometimes the site does not pick up dupes when using a spreadsheet.
Thanks for letting me know.

Sgt. Harold Wesley Way
I can give you one other one off the top of my head. He died at MCAS New River and was the NCOIC of Electrical Shop wile I was NCOIC of Radio Shop. We had a bird down in Mississippi with a bad generator. We were ferrying another CH-53 to Corpus Christi, Tx for overhaul. Sgt. Way was taking a generator for the downed helo and would come back in it. The Ch-53 he was in had a rotor blade failure on lift off loaded with internal fuel tanks for the long trip to Texas. His memorial is # 95115952

Korea Marine
My uncle was a Marine in Korea in 3/5. He was in the first wave at Inchon, fought at Seoul and at the Chosin Reservoir. I was a Marine in Vietnam (HML-367, MAG 36). I have requested a transfer of my uncle's memorial and will add a short bio. If you would like to add him to your virtual cemetery he is memorial #111050652.

Thank you for honoring our Marines. Semper Fi.
