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: Oley and Pearl Summerfield
I know it was not very good as I had to wash a lot of mud off the marker. I will try to get a nicer one after we get better weather. Areas are like a muddy marsh after several days of rain.

Wiswell, Henry & Mary

I have a link here for Prairie Home Cemetery in Richland Mi. where Henry & Mary Wiswell are buried but the cemetery records say they are in unmarked graves. This cemetery has been photographed & I have added that link.

No, I am sorry, I have no knowledge of this family. I only went by the headstone. Sorry.
