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. Much of my time on Find A Grave has been spent documenting the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in such large numbers in this region, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein.

I was lucky enough to have a free afternoon on April 16th, so I drove to Cedar Grove, Kentucky, a place I visited once before as a teenager in the 1980s with my grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw. I visited the grave sites of my 3rd-great-grandfather John Quincy Bolton (1836-1923) and my 4th-great-grandfather Capt. John Bailey Bolton (1800-1883). My 3rd-great-grandmother Mary E. Bell Bolton (1834-1919), also in the Cedar Grove Cemetery, was a descendant of Col. William Crawford (1722-1782), who has been the focus of a lot of my recent research. Just the down the road a little I also visited the grave site of John Clarence Crenshaw (1807-1891) and Mary Eliza Troutman Crenshaw (1810-1880) in the Old Cedar Grove Cemetery. After lunch in nearby Shepherdsville I headed home, having enjoyed an afternoon spent in my ancestors' old stomping grounds. Hope to have many more this summer just like it.

RE: Anna Maria Garthwaite
Hello Mr. Whitesides,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I believe Miles is Ephraim's brother.

I've known about Anna Maria for years---12?---from a book about textiles in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. As I said, there doesn't seem to be any information about her personal life, but plenty of her designs remain in the museum's collection. If you do some research, would you please let me know what you find out? My work has just begun

Thanks again.

Anna Maria Garthwaite
Hello Mr. Whitesides---

I'm not adding something, I'm asking. Why did you add a page about Anna Maria Garthwaite? I am beginning to collect information about her in order to write a book. She was one of the top silk designers in mid-18th century in London's East End---Spitalfields, to be exact. There is very little known about her, and the years of her birth vary from source to source. My kinship with her is professional, rather than familial. I used one of her designs as a basis for one of my designs, during my professional career. (Retired now, and finally illustrating and writing full time.) While it would be nice to know where she's buried, it's not important.

The book will be historical fiction---I doubt there will be enough for a biography. I had the same problem with my first book, "Master of the Sweet Trade: A Story of the Pirate Samuel Bellamy, Mariah Hallett, and the Whydah." A fictional biography---so to speak.

Thank you very much if you are able to shed some light on this mysterious, but talented, woman.
