Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Licking Riverside Historic District of Covington, directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. For the past couple of years my primary focus has been preserving the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in such large numbers throughout the Ohio River Valley. My favorite German connection is through my 9th-great-grandmother Marthe, Madame de Rocoulle (c.1655-1741), who was a Hofdame at the Berlin court of Friedrich Wilhelm von Preußen (1688-1740) and Sophia Dorothea von Hannover (1687-1757) and was the governess of their son Friedrich der Große (1712-1786).

One of my favorite finds has been locating the grave site in Norfolk, Virginia of my fourth-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who was herself 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.

Joseph Conklin photo request
Hi Todd,
I visited Sect 47 Lot 26 at Spring Grove. I was unable to locate a marker for Joseph Conklin there. I did photograph the other markers there but found that most have already been added to their memorials. I believe that I did get a clearer picture of the north side of the Conklin monument that has inscriptions for Eliza Jane and Harriet Conklin on it. I can add that picture to their mems, if you'd like. I also photographed the Spears family that is also on this lot. I can add those pics also.

John Hill Cemetery
Hello! My name is Dustin. I seen that you contributed a photo of the above cemetery and thought to ask a favor. I am originally from the newport area but no longer live in the area. I have been doing genealogy research for some time now and have run across a family member who is said (via death certificate) to be buried there but have had no luck in locating any proof that he is there. If it is not too much trouble, next time you may be that way, could you take a peek for me?

RE: Margery Whalesborough Molyns
Thank you so very much! There has been much discussion of her identity on SGM, and it seems CP also believed she was a Whalesborough:

CP IX:41, note n:

"She (Margery) was probably a Whalesborough. . .
She held Pengelly in St. Neot's, Cornwall."

CP IX:41, note p, referring to the brass:

"Brss, with figures of himself. . .and his wife, with the inscription: HIC JACENT WILLELMVS MOLYNS MILES QVI OBIJT VIIJ DIE MENSIS JVNII ANNO DOMINI M CCCCXXV ET DOMINA MARGERIA VXOR VS. . . .Arms: (i) Three piles wavy conjoined at base (i.e. Mauduit used by Moleyns); (ii) Moleyns (Mauduit) impaling 3 bends within a bordure with roundels (Whalesborough)."
