Gustav A. Lange (1869-1954), who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1894, had an illustrious life sailing the world on the high seas until 1910 when he became the captain of the Ambrose Lightship LV 87/WAL 512. Spending 50 years at sea, his wife Elizabeth, and his three daughters, Elsie, Eisabelle, and Mildred, saw very little of him.
