John Louis Akard commented on person <Private> Turpen :
 Hover over the URLs in the two messages on Beulah's Profile Page. They become underlined. This indicates they are Hyper Links to the sites. (Unfortunately, this doesn't work on the Home Page)

I have every reason to believe that this is Beulah's application for a marriage license.

This may be Beulah's marriage license. Worth further research?

John Louis Akard commented on person Etta Bartlett (born Kaiser) :
 The is a Find a Grave Memorial that I believe may be this Etta. It's at URL

http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=bartlett&GSfn=etta&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=75307123&df=all&

It list these exact dates for Etta. It list her as Etta Belle Kinser Bartlett (not Kaiser). The 9 children are listed with links to their memorials but most of the spelling disagrees. There are links to her husband and two brothers and a mention of her parents' names. There is a photo of the tombstone. This appears to be your Etta, even with these different spellings. It's quite common to find differences like this in genealogy. Further research is needed to discover what these people used for names. The main problem is not the spelling. You have 4 of these children as still alive and Find a Grave list all 9 as dead. The one born 2/25/1900, you have as Winifred. The Find a Grave listing shows Winford Bartlett who married Bertha Blackwell and fathered 3 children.

Now, if you have documentation to support what you have here, I'd be happy to see it. I believe the two most important things in genealogy are truth and whose data to trust. If you are not confident of any of this, I feel, it's best to list everything you learn, explaining what you found, where you found it and who said so. If it's too confused, leave it to the next generation to find the final truth. Give them as much as you can so they might make an informed opinion. Hope I haven't bored you too much.

John Louis Akard commented on person John David Martin :
 From his Find a Grave Memorial
Birth: Oct. 18, 1948
Death: Nov. 4, 1971, Vietnam

Son of John and Edna (Turpen) Martin. He was a graduate of Heltonville High School. He was one of a crew of 11 Americans lost when a small cargo vessel carrying ammunition sank November 3, 1970 near shore in the South China Sea - about five miles south of the demilitarized zone and some 100 miles northeast of Da Nang, South Vietnam.

The adjutant general's board of review report indicated that the LCU-63 may have capsized in a storm.

The limestone monument was carved by his grandfather, Emery Martin, Bedford, a retired stone carver. Bronze plaques on the monument carry Jerry's name and 10 fellow crew members.
