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 30,000 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.

Gordon C Strine, JR 152013270

Dear Bob Spalding,

I was wondering if you might know who the paternal Grandparents are of Gordon C Strine, JR.

I am wanting to place Gordon Jr and Sr in the correct area of my family tree but am at a loss as to the parents of Gordon Sr and grandparents of Gordon Jr.

From various records I've come up with the following person who I think is Gordon Sr's mother:

Marie Ryan STRINE-Olney-Marchone-Covey #154041093

Thank you for any information you may be able to provide and for your time.

Haven't been faithful to send you any names, but thought this one important enough.

Louise Mildred Klempner Drew was not the wife of Ronald J Klempner. She was born a Klempner and married a Drew. There doesn't seem to be a way to suggest an edit to remove the link, sorry.
Thanks and best wishes,

I noticed you had made a listing for Arthur C. Calk with (burial unknown). Someone else made the same listing, #143199589 in the cemetery (see info below) for him with the headstone photo. I have attached the info for the other listing for him. I do hope you will delete your listing as "Burial Unknown".

Richard Cirka
I'm glad to see you are updating the info for Richard Cirka. The cemetery here in Oceanside, CA, Eternal Hills, has been giving me a very hard time about not being a family member requesting help in finding this man's gravestone.

Another party has requested this photo for a couple months now. I've taken pity on him and tried several times to update Mr. Cirka's file as well as getting directions once again today.

Thank you for doing your part. I'm thinking you've been ill or something.....
