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 20,000 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.

RE: Gerald McCarthy 124753577
Hi. Sorry, I was not clear. This gentleman's name is spelled Gerald P. McCarty, not McCarthy. A memorial with the correct name was set up before the one with the erroneous spelling of the surname was added. Please see 124131923. I apologize for any confusion I caused. Regards.

My father was Capt. William Perry Brown Jr. He has 4 cenotaphs (his remains were never recovered). The one I consider his primary is the one located in his hometown of Lovelady, TX.

Lovelady, TX - 48410938

Ft Rosecrans, CA - 116066434 (this is where our mother is interred)

Korean War Memorial - 119000717

Courts of the Missing (Honolulu Memorial) - 117309988

Thank you SO MUCH for posting the obituary for Joshua Kelley. I loved how much information was in it which confirmed he was "my" Joshua. :)

Do you happen to have the original obituary or know where I can put my hands on it (newspaper issue?)? I'd love to have a copy of the original. The obituary as transcribed on the Memorial Page implies his brothers and sisters are "surviving" him, but as he was the baby of the family and died at age 99, they were all passed away by the time he did. I love that they were included in the transcription, however!

Also, I wouldn't mind managing this page in the future if you want to transfer it to me. No worries if you don't, I just thought I would offer, however. :) Take care and thank you again!

Got your suggestion. Are you related? I don't normally add obituaries. If you want it added, I'd be happy to transfer management to you. Just let me know. Debbie J.

RE: Caleb Erickson
It is my honor to sponsor Corporal Erickson. I have a soft spot for Marines. My father was a Marine fighter pilot - WWII and Korea. Unfortunately he didn't return home from Korea.
