: | The is a Find a Grave Memorial that I believe may be this Etta. It's at URL
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.

: | 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.
