|Bio and Links|
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. My primary interest is photographing the surviving Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein. My grandmother Lou Deitchman Crenshaw, an active member of the German-American Club Gesangverein in Louisville, cultivated in me an interest in our German heritage, and together we researched the families of her 2nd-great-grandfathers, Carl Deutschmann (1800-1869) and Philipp Jacob Deuser (1815-1874). When I lived in the Highlands Neighborhood of my hometown I enjoyed being able to visit St Louis Cemetery where my 4th-great-grandparents, Johann Michael Hillerich (1795-1879) and his wife Anna Apollonia Ritter Hillerich (1799-1876), are buried.|
