A friend of mine's father knew a man named Fellows. All we know is that he was in the 6th Division, Marines in WWII. My friend has a sketch that Fellows drew with charcoal from a fire (I think before the war). Apparently Fellows said he'd finish it after the war but never did, thus he may have fallen in battle.

If anyone has any info. please email me at bruno@twave.net. Thanks!
