Lucinda Fahnestock Chapman 103115279
Hello Dean
What a wonderful surprise this morning.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
You made my day, my week, my year!

Thank you for the transfer of Lucinda Fahnestock Chapman 103115279 to our care.

Loucinda (Fahnestock) Chapman wrote a small book on her Fahnestock genealogy.

I just inherited her mother Susan (Wittenmyers) Fahnestock's Bible and their tin type photograph which I will always treasure.

I appreciate the time you spent making Lucinda's memorial and then sharing it with me. Thank you!

Find A Grave is a wonderful site, but only because of people like you.

Thank you!
