|Bio and Links|
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. My primary interest is recording the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled throughout the Ohio River Valley. My grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw helped to cultivate this interest in our German heritage, and together we researched the families of her second-great-grandparents, Carl Deutschmann (1800-1869) and his wife Dorothea Kern (1810-1869) along with Philipp Jacob Deußer (1815-1874) and his wife Katharina Barbara Schlichter (1821-1877). |
One of my favorite discoveries shared on Find A Grave is locating the grave site in Norfolk, Virginia of my fourth-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who was a fourth-great-granddaughter of Thomas Symes (c.1621-1670) and Amy Bridges Symes (c.1624-1662), who were buried in the chancel of Saint Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire, England. Sarah Ann's cousin Maj. William Thornton Timberlake (1789-1857) surveyed what was to become Dixie Highway here in Northern Kentucky. The profile picture above shows my visit to the grave site in Athens, Tennessee of Elizabeth Smith Pendleton Lipscomb (1782-1862), only sister of my fifth-great-grandmother Mary Shore Pendleton Sheppard (d. 1826) of Richmond, Virginia. These two were cousins of Gen. James Taylor (1769-1848), whose home still stands just a short walk from where I work in Newport, Kentucky. Another of their cousins William Armistead Pendleton (1801-1848) was the first court clerk here in Kenton County, Kentucky.
Gathering photos and information on the early pioneers of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati has become a rewarding pastime. I will happily transfer memorials within Find A Grave's guidelines and beyond that if it seems appropriate, but please understand if I retain a memorial you want if I feel I am a worthwhile custodian. We're all in this together.

I would like your permission to use your tombstone photos of my family members.
At this time I'm working on the Thole/Wilken families.
I will source you however you like.
I appreciate your sharing your photos with us.

Thanks for the information posted,Todd. I was amazed to see a photo of Johann Nicholas Scheid, my husband's great-grandfather. Where did this picture originate?
Also, even though the marker does say he was born in 1819, the birth and christening records I have say it was 6 April 1820 in Roth Selburg.
And there were other children, including Barbara Margaret (Maggie) Scheid, who married George Bergelt.
I have more information on them if you want to add more to the memorial.

Thank you so very much for these great photos, this is wonderful. I will use them for my family tree and will give you the photo credit. I appreciate your effort. I did not know that Mary Agnus Heuer's first name was Anna, will have to go back and look at the photo again. Thanks again also for creating the memorials and transferring them to me.
Thanks for the awesome photos.

Since I am unable to find a death certificate or a full obit for Minerva Tucker I am trying to find her funeral Home record. She was buried by Charles A. Smith in 1910 in Newport. I do not believe this funeral home exists anymore. However, do you know who purchased them or if Smith records are posted anywhere?

Thanks so very very much for the awesome photo of J G Heuer's marker. I love the closeup of the inscription, thank you for doing that. I see Andy is on his marker, I will have to look up to see how he fits in. I believe it is a son. Can you get a closeup of his inscription too. May I have your permission to copy this photo for my tree?
I wonder if Maria has a marker too! Thank you thank you again.
