Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Licking River Historic District of Covington directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, and have spent much of my time on Find A Grave documenting the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in such large numbers throughout the Ohio River Valley. At this time I'm primarily researching the family of my great-grandmother Virginia Mahala Lindsey Whitesides. Her great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855) died during a yellow fever epidemic in Norfolk, Virginia and was a descendant of Thomas Symes (c.1621-1670) and his wife Amy Bridges Symes (c.1624-1662), who were buried in the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire, England. Many of her cousins, also descendants of the Virginia gentry, settled in Kentucky at an early date, and I've been fortunate to locate several of them in the area around my adopted home in Northern Kentucky, including Gen. James Taylor (1769-1848), Alice Thornton Taylor Berry (1773-1837), and Ann Winston Hinde Southgate (1783-1833) at Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Maj. William Thornton Timberlake (1789-1857) at Highland Cemetery in Fort Mitchell, as well as William Hardia (1784-1865) and William Timberlake (1818-1870) at Linden Grove Cemetery in Covington. Further afield, some other near relatives found include Henry Timberlake (1777-1848) and Jonathan Massie (1785-1863) in Paris, Kentucky, as well as James Bullock (1735-1813) in Lexington, Kentucky. Some of her cousins at Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville include Edmund Bullock (1763-1852) and John Graham Simrall (1840-1908).

Mother of God Church

I like your entry of Mother of God Church. I assumed that these two burials were entered incorrectly until I read your information. Keep up your great work.

RE: Sara Florence Goddard Honaker
Sarah Florence Goddard married Francis William Honaker.
My husband is descended from Francis William Honaker's sister Lula Thomas Honaker who married Aaron Calvin McCurdy.
I don't need transfer of management but it was nice of you to ask.
Yours in Kentucky
Ann (husband is from Stamping Ground, Ky)

RE: photo question
Todd, thanks! I uploaded that photo. I wish I took more but was hustling through the area on my way to Florida. My primary mission that day was to find a cemetery referred to as the "Old Fightmaster Burial ground below Union Ridge". Does that ring a bell? I would have Thomas Fightmaster, Cynthia West, other Fightmasters. I did happen upon another unknown burial plot with 3 markers. I am in the process of trying to figure out how to add a new cemetery. I have the GPS coordinates also, will it give me an option to add that? thanks and feel free to redirect me if necessary. Next time I go back down I will try and take photos of the rest of Hudson Abbot cemetery.

photo question
Todd, I added a headstone photo of John W Curry to the memorial you added (Hudson-Abbot cemetery). Also on the photo is a lady, Mary E. Long. She was not added in the cemetery's list of deceased. What would your recommendation be? Add the name? Add as Mary E. Long or Mary E. Curry.
