Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Historic Licking Riverside Neighborhood of Covington, directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. Much of my research has been focused on the German immigrants who settled in the Ohio River Valley, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein, but I'm also interested in the Irish immigrants in the region, as well as the scions of the Virginia gentry who were influential in the early settlement of Kentucky. DNA testing through Ancestry has shown that the three ethnic groups comprising the majority of my background are Western European, Irish, and British.

One of my favorite discoveries shared on Find A Grave was locating the burial place of my 4th-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who died during a yellow fever epidemic in Norfolk, Virginia, and whose 5th-great-grandparents, Thomas Symes (1621-1670) and his wife Amy Bridges Symes (1621-1662), were buried in the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire. Henry Timberlake (d. 1625), the first of that surname to reside in Virginia, was buried in the chancel of St Peter's Church at Titchfield in Hampshire with his friend and associate Henry Wriothesley (1573-1624), 3rd Earl of Southampton.

RE: Joseph Robinson
Hey no problem! Thanks for not getting upset... I'm just checking all of Cave Hill for dupes and lots of people have duped you and they have been sent to edit for merging when they wouldn't delete.

Heinrich Henn Birthplace
Hi, I appreciate all your efforts to preserve German history in the Ohio River Valley. Your memorial for Heinrich Henn shows a birthplace in Rheinland-Pfalz. Do you have a source?

Ihlendorf correction
Thanks for correcting the burial location to Calvary Cemetery. The confusion was with his son by the same name. I put in a photo request so you can submit the marker photos. Thanks!

John Tatum
Whitesides family
Hi Todd,
My name is John Tatum. We are related some way. My 2nd ggrandfather was Thomas Henry Whitesides, son of Charles Whitesides, who was married to Elizabeth Graves. Charles was the son of John Whitesides, married to Catharine 'Caty' Coons. His father, William Franklin Whitesides, would be my 5th ggrandfather. Right now, that is as far back as I have for the Whitesides family. I've been adding information to my genealogy from Find-A-Grave. I wonder who our common ancestor would be.
