Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching my own heritage in 1975 (ALL of my great-grandparents came to the US from various parts of Germany). In 1984 I began researching my husband Dave's ancestry and I've been "climbing trees" ever since. Some of our family history is on my Web site Gustafson-Wichmann Ancestry.

We love to assist others and we have taken several thousand gravestone photos which we upload to my personal Web pages. If you have Central Ohio (Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union counties) family or ancestors their gravestones might appear on my pages:

Please, keep in mind that photographs found on our web pages are copyrighted. PLEASE do not pirate them. I am always happy to share and will post any photo that is requested.

If I manage a memorial and it's not a member of our extended family I will be happy to transfer it. Please use the "Edits" tab on the top right hand of the page and click on the transfer management link.

Please take a minute to visit the memorial page for our nephew, Sgt. Grant Arthur Wichmann. He paid the ultimate price in the War on Terrorism.

Thanks and a question
Thanks so much for posting the photo of the gravestone of my 5th great grandfather, Revolutionary War soldier Benjamin Chapman (Find A Grave Memorial# 52412100) (b. CT 1763 - d OH 1824) buried at White (Britton) Cemetery in Norwich.

I was amazed you could read it, since the tree that grew over the stone has nearly covered the whole gravestone.

I wondered how you knew it was him? Could you read the stone, or was it recorded in sexton's records?

I have been to your website and seen (and cited as a source) the page on White (Britton) Cemetery. It seems there is much to know about this fascinating place. If you have more notes or information about it, I would be very interested.

Also, may I have David's permission to use his two 2005 photos of the stone (in the tree) in my family history? I will, of course, credit David as photographer and you for posting the photos on Find A Grave - I try to always cite my sources.
