Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Licking Riverside neighborhood of Covington, directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. My primary interest is recording the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled throughout the Ohio River Valley. My favorite German connection is through my ninth-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), König von Preußen.

Finding familial connections to Northern Kentucky has been an exciting experience, especially through the family of my great-grandmother Virginia Lindsey Whitesides. Her great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who died during a yellow fever epidemic in Norfolk, Virginia, was a cousin of Henry Timberlake (1777-1848) of Paris, Kentucky, as well as Maj. William Thornton Timberlake (1789-1857), founder of present-day Erlanger, Kentucky. Sarah Ann's first husband, John M. Sheppard (d. 1835), was a nephew of Elizabeth Smith Pendleton Lipscomb (1782-1862) of Athens, Tennessee, and was an uncle of the Richmond artist Lieut. William Ludwell Sheppard (1833-1912). Through this fourth-great-grandfather Sheppard I'm related to Gen. James Taylor (1769-1848), founder of present-day Newport, Kentucky, as well as William Armistead Pendleton (1801-1848), first court clerk of Kenton County, Kentucky.
