Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Historic Licking River District of Covington, directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. My primary interest is in preserving the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled throughout the Ohio River Valley.

One of my favorite finds in Northern Kentucky has been locating the grave marker of my fourth-great-grandmother Anna Maria Hürster Götz's half-sister Maria Ursula Nußbaum Uhl (1805-1891) at Camp Springs in Campbell County. My favorite German connection though is through my ninth-great-grandmother Marthe, Madame de Rocoulle (c. 1655-1741), who was the governess of Friedrich der Große (1712-1786), König von Preußen.

Three pairs of German-born fourth-great-grandparents buried in the Ohio River Valley include Carl Deutschmann (1800-1869) and his wife Dorothea Kern (1810-1869), Philipp Jacob Deußer (1815-1874) and his wife Katharina Barbara Schlichter (1821-1877), Johann Michael Hillerich (1795-1879) and his wife Anna Apollonia Ritter (1799-1876).

Mary Duncan's Daughter Eliza
I photographed Mary Duncan's memorial. On the opposite side of her obelisk is the engraving for her daughter Eliza, born 1801. She is not listed among the 4 children in your memorial. If you'd like the photo of the other side of the stone with Eliza's information, let me know. Regards, Rich

RE: Sarah Huston January
I don't know where William Huston and his wife, Elizabeth are buried.

Elizabeth died in a cholera epidemic in 1833 and was buried at First Hill in Lexington, KY. When her husband died in 1838, that cemetery was no longer being used. If he wasn't buried in First Hill, he was most likely buried in Lexington Cemetery, but there is record.

Later, the bodies from First Hill were reinterred in other graveyards, some in Lexington Cemetery. But hey have no record of William and Elizabeth being buried there. Some bodies were not moved but I don't know if the Hustons were or not.

That's why I had to put that their burial is unknown.

Can you please link Sarah to her parents?

Thank you,
Cecilia

RE: William Middendorf
Not familiar with this William Middendorf. I tried to link he with the Klotzbach or the Limburg but was not successful.

Question for you - I noticed you know about the German Pioneer Assoc. Is there a book about this group?
