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. My grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw cultivated in me an interest in our heritage, especially in her Anglo-Catholic ancestry in Maryland, and after being nominated by my cousin Crolian William Edelen, I was granted membership with The Society of Descendants of Lords of Maryland Manors. One of my cousins through the Edelen family, the antiquarian Benedict Joseph Webb (1814-1897), was the author of The Centenary of Catholicity in Kentucky (Louisville, 1884) and was a prominent opponent of the Know-Nothing Party. On the Protestant side of my family, one of my favorite discoveries 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), are buried in a vault beneath the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire.

Linda Doile Morris
James Stanley 7th Earl of Derby
My name is Linda. I recorded a memorial on James but yours is older. I would like to discuss mine with you before I take mine done or transfer to you. Quite sometime ago, I discovered by accident that he had a son named John. I found this info on a list of descendants of Lady Joan Beaucont. It listed him as the youngest child of James who "went to Maryland with his son Darby. Also stated that he was the Major General surveyor of the colony. Well I went looking the and sure enough I found him in Maryland but no mention of Darby. Was Derby intended? Anyway with a daughter too.

My cousins and I have debated using this info ever since. It turns that we can hardly relate to these people. Seems we can deal with farmers easier. LOL. Anyway I did attach John to his parents. By the way, he only mentioned to them as James and Elizabeth.

I would like your imput if you will. I do have the sorces.

Johan Bernard Feldmann-Find A Grave Memorial# 142303724
Todd, I find your bio very interesting and Iím pleased to see youíve had success in locating long sought after ancestors. We visited Covington, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio last summer in search of my ancestors.

I first noticed your bio because of a memorial you had set up for Johan Bernard Feldmann who died in 1836 and is buried at Friedhof Saint Viktor, Damme, Vechtaer Landkreis, Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany-Find A Grave Memorial# 142303724. That happens to be where my Feldmann ancestors are from.

I have been trying to locate Johann Bernard Feldmann b. abt. Abt. 1797 Borringhausen, Vechta, Niedersachsen, Germany, and Agnes (Baune) Feldmann b. Abt. 1798 Borringhausen, Vechta, Niedersachsen, Germany. The Felmannn family departed from Bremen, Germany on April 16, 1843 on the sailing ship Marianna. They arrived at the Port of Baltimore on June 8, 1843. The family members listed are Bernhard Feldmann age 46, Agnes Feldmann age 45, Agnes Feldmann age 20, Marianne Feldmann age 16, Anna Feldmann age 12 and Henry Feldmann age 8. They are listed as coming from Damme, Germany. The Feldmanns were going to Cincinnati. There were others aboard this ship who were from Damme, Germany, as well as Neunkirchen and Steinfeld, all villages in the Vechta area. The village of Borringhausen is near Damme and the Feldmann family would have attended Saint Viktor Church.

I havenít found documentation of Johann Bernard Feldmann and his family after their arrival in Cincinnati, other than the daughter, Marianne (aka Maria Anna Feldmann who married Joseph Hatke at Old St. Maryís Church in Cincinnati in 1844 - my ancestors.)

Iím curious as to how you came to set up the Find A Grave memorial for Johan Bernard Feldmann who died in 1836?

It is nice seeing that you are still active.
Todd, it has been a while.

I am also in preserving the history of the German-speakers in Southern Indiana. It appears we might be plowing some of the same ground. My ancestry on my mother's side is all german-speakers. Most came from Muensterland, Prussia; Gelderland, Neatherland and The Grand Duchy of Oldenburg. However, my Ggrandfather was from Bavaria.

I see your name associated with the Thole's. My GGgrandfather's sister, Maria Agnes Macke married Heinrich Thole and lived in Cincinnati. Perhaps we have information to exchange.

It is nice seeing that you are still active.
