Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 28 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 31,000 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.

Hi Bob. I am uploading photos and noticed that this person was entered twice in Tahoma. Yours happens to be the second entry, albeit on the same day. I uploaded photos to both, but could you delete and//or merge this memorial with 16260928? Thanks.

John David Schnuck
Mr Spalding, it is great work you are doing for our vet's. John Schnuck is in the Clay City Cemetery Find A Grave # 141031739 . The Church (Saint John's ) is in the small town of Clay city (which no longer exist). Any info you have I would love to add to # 141031739. John and his brother Larry Schnuck (my first husband) are the fifth generation of Schnucks buried in the Clay City Cemetery. Thanks, Betty (Schnuck) Kerkhoff

I don't see this Marine
in your virtual cemetery. I sent some corrections to the owner of the memorial. I was on the mission when his CH-53 were shot down by a SAM missile. Two other Marines who died on that aircraft are already in your virtual cemetery.

Thank you for what you are doing for Marines.

While working on some older memorials came across this one. Ruth, and especially her husband, were personal acquaintances, though she probably wouldn't have remembered me. I hope to expand the memorial. Though her husband Derek is "Famous" and I cannot change his memorial, her's is not so, I can continue to add. There is so much more that could have been added to the memorial, but much is private and cannot be shared in a public venue, it is a fascinating story. A big part is how she believed her time in the Marine Corps prepared her for a later life of traveling around the world caring for her aging husband with a demanding speaking schedule.
Hope you enjoy.
