Bio and Links
Bio Photo Private genealogist and armchair historian, I've been actively pursuing my ancestors since 1982 and am pretty much a lone wolf in my research these days, meaning I don't pause to collaborate with others on their ancestry. My primary interest is researching the gentry families who were instrumental in settling North America, as well as locating the burial places of their antecedents in the British Isles. One of my favorite finds in recent years 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. She was a granddaughter of Francis Timberlake (d. 1808), vestryman of St Paul's Parish, Hanover County, by his wife Sarah Sims Timberlake (c.1745-1832). Her grandmother Sarah's 3rd-great-grandparents in the direct male line were Thomas Symes (c.1621-1670) and his wife Amy Bridges Symes (1621-1662), who were buried in the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire, England. 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, England.

Elizabeth (Ashley-Cooper) Harris
I agree that Ashley is the middle name and Cowper the surname. Some people seem to think that their name, whatever it is, can only be spelled one way and if that isnít the spelling then they are not related or the other person has incorrect info. They donít realize that when immigration started to the U.S. the people who were able to write were having to deal with many different languages, therefore accents. They ended up writing down what they heard which accounts for the change of spelling. I have records that one person signed his name with a different spelling on more than one occasion.

I figure that the information I took photos of certainly would be how the name was spelled at that time for that branch of the family. I wasnít there at the time so go by what is in black and white and written by someone who lived during the times. No matter what we do we are wrong according to some people, guess they must be 300 years old and know what was what back then.

I'm not related to Elizabeth so would you like her transferred over to you? If so please make the request through the Transfer link. Also if there are any others that might be related to you, trying to down size. I donít adhere to Find A Graveís guidelines regarding transfers.

Hello Todd
I haven't seen any of you requests lately...only from those who have found you memorials and want the pictures, like Joshua A. Horseman.

I have slowed down my stomping considerably because of a fall I had this summer and it's messed up my back a bit, but my sister has been helping me.

Mark isn't stomping anymore except when I beg. He is now a manager of a large salon here in Louisville and has become the grandfather of two. To think he was a teenager when we started working
together. Time flies when your'e having fun.

Hope all is well with you and yours. You sure kept us busy for a while and we miss was fun running around all over Cave Hill.

Take care and Merry Christmas.
