This post is a follow up to my post A Visit to Rome.
I was looking for something in my genealogy files last week and ran across some of the items from my trip to Rome, Wisconsin. Tonight I decided to share one of the items with you.
A picture of the tombstone is at the end of the post.
In the picture above you can see Sullivan in the upper right corner and Rome in the lower left.
I thought that this map would show up a little better, but it does give a good idea of where Rome and Sullivan are. They are in the middle of the map just abouve the word ‘little’ in the sentence above.
You can see Madison on the left and Milwaukee on the right, and they are about halfway between.
I visited the cemetery where Orsamus was buried, but unfortunately the tombstone was no longer in the original position, was heavily damaged and was in poor condition.
At least I have a good description and know the exact wording that was on the stone.

If you are a descendant of Orsamus Braman please comment below as I would like to know more about his other descendants.
