|Hometown: Louisville, KY. Very proud of the vital, early history of Louisville and Kentucky, and, via an appreciation passed to me by my paternal grandmother, Elinor Fromang Maloney, very much a history buff, genealogist and amatuer collector.|
Important to me to preserve the bits and pieces that make up our history for future generations, whether the tiniest scrap of an old document, the preservation of a single building or the bigger historical picture - that all combine to make up the larger whole of who we were and now are.
Personal, have two old, interconnected buildings in an area of Louisville that has been transforming into a vibrant area of shops, residences and a mix of commercial and idustrial businesses. The primary building, affectionately known as Taj Ma Loney, is a four storey pile of bricks at the moment, built ca. 1849 by German immigrants, and awaiting the major updates that renovation requires. The other, Das Hofhaus, ca. 1840, is a camelback style shotgun house that was renovated in 1997, but still needs some TLC. Housed in both are bits and trinkets that focus on family past, and Louisville, Kentucky, German and Irish items.

I enjoy reading old newspapers at the Library of Congress website. I stumbled upon a wedding announcement for Robert W. Bingham and Mary Flagler in the Hopkinsville Kentuckian of 11/7/1916. This little announcement is packed with biographically information about both the bride and the groom. I thought you might like to see it.
Are you sure he's in Western Cemetery? There's another entry with a monument photo from Cave Hill.

Who are the 2 guys in the picture you've added. I assume one of them is William. Which? And who is the other guy?

In the info about Jennie Carter Benedict
the head of the Boston Cooking School's name needs to read "Fannie Farmer" and not "Fanny Farmer."
Fannie Farmer was the cook. Her name and fame were used by the candy company Fanny Farmer's.
Common confusion. I only learned the difference the other day on Fannie Merritt Farmer's birthday.

Thanks for the family information. I have added the links to Joseph Peter & Sarah Catherine.

You are welcome.

As a young man I used to access his books at the library. His works now available on line at Many Books and his stories of Henry Ware the famous five undoubtably grew out of stories in Kentucky. Always enjoy revisiting his work. Under valued today.

I do have relatives in that section of St. Michael - Thomas and Maria Regina Bohr. My intentions in recording the entire area of Block 10 are many. It's often that relatives were buried in proximity of each other, so I always look at the graves surrounding my known relatives. Even after recording the entire section and doing just initial, high-level research on the person buried, I might not discover a relationship. But who's to say that future research won't uncover a connection. For instance, a few rows away from Thomas and Maria's grave is one for Maria Margeretha Full, who was a servant in the household of Thomas's son, George.
Other reasons that drive me to record as much as possible of these graves is that I'm always wishing that there were more records online that were accessible for research. This is my contribution to helping that along. But most of all, when I go to these cemeteries and see the headstones that have been eroded by time and the elements, I feel that we are on the verge of losing something precious and irreplaceable.
Thanks for recognizing my effort. I know it's mostly a thankless task, but besides the satisfaction it brings me inside, it's the one or two responses that I will get from someone like you that I have inadvertently helped that make this worthwhile.
