I wanted to see how I can have separate list of links with possibly...

<script>
Google map general script which I have working...
</script>

<div id="map-canvas"></div>
<a href="#" data-address="my address" data-lat="latitude data" data-lng="longitude data">Whatever Link</a> to

The idea is to populate a marker on the map. I can't seem to find any examples of this out there.

Thx for any help!

populate a marker on the map

Do you mean, set, add, put, place a marker on the map?

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/kuxL5hux/

// GLOBAL VARIABLE
var map = null;

function initialize() {
    var mapOptions = {
          zoom: 10,
          center: new google.maps.LatLng(16.1186017, -61.5229536),
          mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
    };
    map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map_canvas'), mapOptions);
}

window.onload = function() {
    document.getElementsByTagName("a")[0].onclick = function() {
        var isNotAlreadyAddedToTheMap = !this.getAttribute("data-done");
        if(isNotAlreadyAddedToTheMap) {
            var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(this.getAttribute("data-lat"), this.getAttribute("data-lng"));
            var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                position: myLatlng,
                map: map,
                title: this.getAttribute("data-address")
            });
            this.setAttribute("data-done", true);
        }
    }
}
