Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Sedona, Arizona, back before it was "discovered." I still consider Sedona to be my hometown even though I no longer live there.

In 1965 I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I was a Recon Marine, serving with 1st Recon Bn in Viet Nam and with 2nd Recon Bn at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. I received my Honorabe Discharge from the Corps in 1971.

My primary focus in Find A Grave is to create new memorials, or add to existing memorials, for the Marines and Navy Corpsmen of 1st Recon Bn who fought the Battle of Hill 488 - those who died on the hill and those who have since passed on - plus the five Marines from Charlie 1/5, VMO-2 and VMO-6 who died coming to the rescue of their Recon brothers. Semper Fi.

My secondary focus is to create new memorials, or add to existing memorials, for the Marines of Recruit Platoon 145 - The Arizona Platoon - MCRD San Diego - 1965.

And finally I wish to locate and obtain photos of the graves of relatives in my personal family tree and also those in my wife's family tree, and to create new memorials when appropriate.

RE: Norman Headstone Photos
You asked > I am also writing to ask if you would be willing to grant me permission to post these photos on the individual pages I maintain.

Yes - You may use these photos on their individual pages.

Note that I also added photo's for several other family members that were linked to Lawrence/Lonnie. I took photo's of every Norman in the Cemetery and will add all of them as I move through the photo editing process.

RE: Stephens-Robinson
Thanks for the response, Bill. I am not on ancestry any longer, so I guess I cannot see your tree, but thanks for the offer. I do not know anything about Cader and Fannie. I did obtain copies of their obituaries from the Texas paper, but there was not much in there that helped. I would really like to see pictures of them, and especially of Fannie's father, William Robinson. Thanks again, Tim

Hi. Was wondering if you are connected to the families of Cader Stephens, and his wife, Fannie Robinson Stephens. Fannie was a cousin of my grandmother. I am trying to do a book on the Robinsons, but so many of them went to Texas from Georgia, where I live, that it is a difficult task. Thanks
