John Marshall High School......... Class Of 1968 Richmond, VA



Welcome to the Official

John Marshall Class of 1968 web-site

As a graduate you are provided this site free of charge.  It is meant to be a community of friends.  We have made our best effort to include every Justices '68 graduate. If your name does not appear please send an email to Administrators John McCauley & Ralph (Earl) Ellis and we'll get you added as soon as possible. The idea is to keep improving this website and keep the information accurate. If you see anything amiss please let us know. If you know how to contact a Classmember who has not signed-up, please pass this information on.
The names were taken from the '68 yearbook and from the Justices' list of '68 graduates, if there are mispellings or you prefer to go by a nickname please change your name when you create your profile.

It is easy to get started, just click on the "Classmate Profiles",  click your name from the list, fill out the information and pick a password.  Your email address will never be revealed to others.  Another person can send you a private email and you will receive a notice in your email box that you have a message at this site.  You can send messages back and forth without revealing your email address.  Your friends will know your email address if you choose to reveal it.  Your home address can be hidden or shown it is your choice how you want to handle that information.  We would like you to at least enter a city and state because we are trying to map where everyone lives now.

To see everyone's senior photograph, go to Classmate Profiles and click Show Yearbook Photo. For those of you that didn't have a senior yearbook photo, we have used the next photo available (jr, soph, fresh, 8th, etc) that we could find.

I'd like to thank Bev Massie for getting the ball rolling on a trip we will never forget WAA. We took the train to Washington DC on Friday the 11th.  Saturday the 12th people started lining up about 6:30 gates open 8:00 and along with 17,000 others.  They open the trailer doors about 9:30 and started helping unloaded 1 of 60 semi-trailers, thruout the cemetery. We place a wreath on the graves of the solders that had served their country. Each person was given 4 weaths and could get back in line for more.  It was truly a honor to be a part of this ceremony.  My only regret was the not knowing the full detail. from WAA, of what to expect, that we could include more people at another location.  Their are a number of locations around the Richmond are

The Reflection of the 45th Reunion, maybe we’ll see a 46th

After chilling out at the Blackmans home, while friends that attended the reunion were at home and resting.  The group got to reflect how the day went and even with the light showers off and on, we feel everyone had a great time.  We had some 1st time class members, meaning they had never been to a reunion in the 45 years and are ready for another.  We had some that had not been in 25 and 35 years and were busy talking non stop the whole time.   We had 2 guests from Sammy Newberry's family, his sister Belinda and brother in law Steve, who were 1st time reunion attendees and class members kept them busy with a lot of talking and asking about Sammy.  We would like to thank them for being there and having a great time. From what I could see, we had plenty of good food and drinks for everyone to enjoy.   I did find time to get some later in the event, with greeting, chatting and getting members their senior picture name tags.   We had a class members photo shot with all present and it will be on the class website later..   Don’t get me wrong I’ve been to all the reunions and my hat goes off to all the committees of class members who have worked on reunions, it is work, but I had fun at all of them.  I can only say I’m sorry about the rain but you know it didn’t dampen the day.  We use the term "Old Friends" but it’s an age term, school class members from Jayem are friends forever.  I’ll keep searching for missing members and maybe they will join us at the next one.

Thanks to our group, Host Sharon/Robert Blackman, Pat/David Turner, Mary/Earl William, my wife Gail Ellis and Ann/Don Richardson plus some in the background so we could enjoy our reunion.

Thank You to all who attended the 45th reunion and your kind words are appreciated.

What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address

WOW!!!   Another great time in Mexico with classmates from the 60's of John Marshall High School.  I never thought we could duplicate the 2010 event in Playa del Carmen, but we did.  We had a sit back when Mother Nature took out The Baja and Cabo San Lucas, but we were resilient and completely moved the event to Puerto Vallarta in three short weeks. 

The Classes of 65', 66', 67', and 68' were represented.  The week went by quickly as we enjoyed the sun, the beach, the pool, food and drink, the spa, fishing, and golf.  We had so much fun and the companionship was so indescribable, that everyone wants to do it again.  Not in four years, but in two years.  We are going to try Cabo again.


2016 JMHS Reunion

More details to follow and concrete planning will begin in the summer of 2015.  Plan on attending.  We need more classmates from the Class of 68".    If you want to keep up with the 2016 Reunion and follow the progress, please email me at

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common.

Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common in people who

  • Spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned
  • Have light-colored skin, hair and eyes
  • Have a family member with skin cancer
  • Are over age 50

You should have your doctor check any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way your skin looks. Treatment is more likely to work well when cancer is found early. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT), and biologic therapy. PDT uses a drug and a type of laser light to kill cancer cells. Biologic therapy boosts your body's own ability to fight cancer.

A little Note from the Site Admin

After the 2008 class reunion I started this school class web site.   At the reunion comments about having a hard time locating class members kept coming up and I must say it’s no joke.   Since 2008 I continue to try locating class members, with some luck.   The ladies are the hardest due to marriages and maybe a remarriage and changing to another state.    I contact some people that wish not to be found and how did I locate them, my answer the Internet, no surprise.    Then you find some that just don’t sign-up, and I may have spent days searching, but that’s me, I’m just glad to locate some.  As you see I have located around 44 per cent of our class, hopefully that will be near 50 per cent by our 50th reunion.   If you know of someone just get their e-mail address and on the site is a Missing Member area to insert that address. This will send them an invite to our site and THANK YOU for your help.

I wanted to thank a large number of you for your kind words about my doing this web site and the contacts you,ve made with friends from the pass.   It's funny some may live a mile away and you didn't know it until.

Enjoy and have fun!

Just wanted to pass this on, everyone needs a helpful hint.

Tick Removal:

A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her simple instructions. Read this one as it could save you from some major problems. Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads. Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. Give it a try. Please forward to anyone with children, hunters or dogs; or anyone who even steps outside in summer!

A School Nurse has written the info below--good enough to share--and it really works! "She had a pediatrician tell her what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc." "Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be stuckto the cotton ball when you lift it away. This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.." "Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately called me back to say, "It worked!"
