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 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.

If I manage a memorial and it's not a member of our extended family I will be happy to transfer it.

Freshwater and Mixon

Thank you so very much for your speedy response to my request for tombstone photographs of the Freshwaters and Mixons. I truly appreciate your kindness in doing this for me. They are all part of a Butz family that I have been researching.

re DoraHart Latham and Dora McKean
Thanks for the gravestone pics for them. These are duplicates, as I suspected. This gives dates to add. I am working to merge them and match the surname to the gravestone name. It is very cold out there. I appreciate your hard work..

can you add the gravestone pic for Dora to her husband James McKean?

thanks, donna white

RE: Eva (Knauss) Hulse gravestone photo
Thank you so much!
I noticed that you also have photos of the gravestones of other members of the Hulse family, located in the Green Lawn Cemetery.
May I also have your permission to download/upload these?
Again, thank you for your consideration.

RE: Highland Cemetery Phots
Leona, Alfred has such a beautiful memorial, just kinda hard to read in its 'natural' state. I know FindaGrave doesn't want volunteers to chalk stones, but the design just came to life with the first stroke of the chalk. The stars were a surprise.I like to take an original first incase you don't like the chalking. It was such a beautiful day here yesterday, one just wanted to be outside. Highland Cemetery has recently paved their driving paths and it always looks nice. I also photographed Elizabeth Rosetta Howland Meyer.
