Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 for the last few years has been documenting the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in such large numbers throughout the Ohio River Valley, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein. My favorite German connection is through my 9th-great-grandmother Marthe, Madame de Rocoulle (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 Friedrich der Große (1712-1786), König von Preußen. My grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw was active with the German-American Club Gesangverein in Louisville and together we researched the families of her 2nd-great-grandfathers, Carl Deutschmann (1800-1869) of Jugenheim in Rheinhessen and Philipp Jacob Deußer (1815-1874) of Mensfelden in Hessen-Nassau.
