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. One of my favorite finds was locating the burial site of my great-grandmother Virginia Lindsey Whitesides's great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who 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 in South Gloucestershire, England. Through my great-grandmother Whitesides, whose paternal ancestry was centered mostly around Richmond, Virginia, I've uncovered several connections to the area around my adopted home in Northern Kentucky, discovering such cousins as Gen. James Taylor (1769-1848), founder of Newport, Maj. Thornton Timberlake (1789-1857), founder of present-day Erlanger, and William Armistead Pendleton (1801-1845), first court clerk of Kenton County. In Covington's historic Linden Grove Cemetery I've located several other cousins from the same branch of my family, including William Hardia (1784-1865), John Mackoy (1802-1882), and William Timberlake (1818-1870). Further afield in Tennessee but still related through the same side of my family, I was able to locate my 4th-great-uncle Sgt. William Garthright Lindsey (1832-1898) and my 6th-great-aunt Elizabeth Smith Pendleton Lipscomb (1782-1862).

RE: Randle Holme and other 'Holmes' - ST Mary's Chester
Hello Todd.. thanks for your kind comments.
I have just added a photo of a memorial to Rowland Waringen who you also have listed (as Waring).
I have been working on records created against what appears to be a duplicated cemetery entry (St Mary's centre) rather than the correct one that you have created in its original name of St Mary's on the Hill. I don't know if there a way of combining those on the incorrect page with yours? Perhaps you might know ??

Randle Holme and other 'Holmes' - ST Mary's Chester
I have posted a photo of a mainly latin inscribed memorial which clearly refers to the Holme family and mentions Randle in first line.
It is attached to his memorial page but I will leave it to you if you think it is worth attaching to the other Holme's that you have created records for.
(Good luck with translating!!!)

Best regards

All the Werners in Cave Hill, Section P, Lot 510 have photos now. Not all had markers of any kind. Six were double-buried (children).

They have nothing in the cemetery ledger about her.

Thank you, for the translation.

All of the Drexler bunch in P687 + Katie Smith & her daughter are loaded.

Sophia Plinke did not have a marker. (that makes two separate Sophia Plinkes without markers. Some other Plinkes did.

Have not gotten the Werners finished yet.

RE: Katherine Byne Bowyer
Hi Todd,
Sorry about the mixup with her name and her DOB.
Her birth information came from a book about the Byne family:- Searches into the history of the family of Byne or Bine of Sussex, by Walter Charles Renhaw. Chapter 1. The Byne Family of Sussex.

RE: Katherine Bynd Bowyer
Hi Todd,
Thanks for your message. Katherine Byne was my 9th Gt. Grandaunt. I know that the print out for the London, England, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538-1812 for the marriage of Mr Edmond Bowyer and Mrs Katherine Bynd. 25 May 1573 at St Giles, Camberwell, Southwark, London, tells us her name was Bynd but if you look at the original Parish Record that is very hard to read it shows Byne. If you would like a copy I can email it to you.

Katherinefs father was William Byne (1503-1558), My 10 Gt. Grandfather, in his will he talks of Catherine:-

1. 1.0 1.1 Prerogative Court of Canterbury and related Probate Jurisdictions: Will Registers. Will of William Byne of Chichester, Sussex., in Church of England. Province of Canterbury. Prerogative Court. Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Probate Records, 1384-1858, National Archives: PROB 11/42A/436.

2. A transcription of part of it:
In the name of god Amen I Willm Byne of Erdingleigh in the Diocese of Chechestre in the Shyre of Sussex Esquyer being of holle mynde and perfite Remembrance thanks be to almightie god althoughe sicke of bodie the tenth daye of october in the yere of our lorde god a thousande five hundred fiftie and eighte make and ordeyne this my last will and testament in maner and fourme following First I bequeth my soulee to almightie god my maker my bodie to be buryed in Christen buryall and concerning my buriall and funerall expences I will there to be bestowed at my burieng tenne pounds and at my monethes mynde vili siijs iiijd and at my twelvemoethes mynde iijli vis viijd of which holle summe before five pounds to be bestowed at the said thre severall tymes in c. and almes c to poore folks Item to poore Folkes at Wasshington xxs Item to Erdingleigh Church towarde the repations of the Church xxs Item to the hygh aulter of the parishe church of Eardingleigh for tithes negligentlie forgotten iijs iiijd Item I give and bequeth to to each of my foure daughters Catheryne Emme Cecyle and Marye to each of theym one hundred poundes -----------

I hope this is enough information for you, if you would like any more let me know.
Best Wishes
