apparently my 6th great grandfather was among the first of the USMC. He was born in 1728 in Ipswich Mass and fought in many of the major battles of the French and Indian War and then in many locations including being at Valley Forge before getting sent to sea. I find much of the history of his service EXCEPT for his service as a marine.

Anyone know where to find this information or have access to it for me?

Thanks

PS my grandfather was a Marine during WWI too....
