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. When I lived in the Highlands Neighborhood of my hometown I enjoyed visiting St Louis Cemetery where my 4th-great-grandparents, Johann Michael Hillerich (1795-1879) and his wife Anna Apollonia Ritter Hillerich (1799-1876), are buried.

My paternal grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw (1927-1990) was an active member and officer of the German American Club Gesangverein in Louisville, and together we researched the families of her 2nd-great-grandfathers, Carl Deutschmann (1800-1869) and Philipp Jacob Deußer (1815-1874), both of Charlestown, Indiana.

Building on the research of my maternal great-uncle Col. Ralph Winfred Rogers (1886-1973), I have since located the grave site in Camp Springs, Kentucky, of Maria Ursula Nußbaum Uhl (1805-1891), aunt of my 3rd-great-grandfather Daniel Götz (1826-1911).

One of my all-time favorite finds was locating the burial place of my 4th-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who died during a yellow fever outbreak 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.

DNA testing through Ancestry has confirmed that my genetic background is predominantly Western European, Irish, and British; which supports the links I've made following the paper trail left by my ancestors.

Martha Staveley Rich
Hello Todd,
Can you explain what you mean by a "calculated relationship" for Martha Staveley with Edward Rich? Could this be a calculation that the 20 July 1626 marriage of Edward Rich and "matthew Staneley" at St. Giles Cripplegate might be a transcription error?
Is that the sourse of your calculated relationship?

I sent you an edit on him requesting you link his memorial to his wife. I believe he was married twice. The first wife is my relative. You will notice that two of the children with memorials were born after the death of Frances Dance. They and at least one other child, without a memorial, can't possibly be hers. I will continue to look and, if I find the other information on the second wife,named Margaret LNU,will let you know. Thanks for your time and your dedication. It is appreciated.

RE: Philippine Deutschmann Peltier
Hi- I have seen your name before. Did you do ancestry DNA or GED Match?

RE: Memorial #83012362
Thanks. Doesn't seem like they are in my line of family, but this was helpful to know where they fit in. I actually found the came across that cemetery Richard is in one day while driving past. Stones are in need of repair as one or both is laying on the ground

Do you know the memorial number for his son, or maybe his name?

Henry Netherton
Dear Todd-
I think I have found another daughter or granddaughter of Henry Netherton, whose grave site you entered on Find a Grave.

Frances Netherton married as his 2nd wife Isaac Lesesne of Carolina (Clute, Annals of St. Thomas and St. Denis 71). An undocumented source gives the marriage date as 30 Aug 1722 (Transactions 84: 141. They had at least three sons, Francis born 1727 (Her surname is given in his birth/baptism record), Peter George born 1731 and John.

Isaac Lesesne died in 1736, leaving a will which gives her first name. (Moore SC Will Abstracts I: 230.
Frances Netherton Lesesne was named in the a 1738 (which I am trying to find), but no record of her death has been found.
I will be glad to share the documentation with you. I don't know if there is any way to tell whether she was a daughter of the London blacksmith or of his son Henry, possibly by a wife in Carolina who died.
Hope this helps. Sincerely, Cheves Leland, Archivist of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina, 138 Logan St. Charleston, SC 29401
