|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 grandmother Luetta Deitchman Crenshaw (1927-1990) cultivated an interest in our ancestry, and she was especially interested in her Anglo-Catholic forbears in colonial Maryland. I have definitely followed in her footsteps in that regard. After being sponsored by my cousin Crolian William Edelen (1920-2006), I was accepted as a member of The National Society of Descendants of Lords of the Maryland Manors. Another cousin through the Edelen family, Benedict Joseph Webb (1814-1897), was the author of The Centenary of Catholicity in Kentucky (Louisville, 1884) and was a determined opponent of The Know-Nothing Party. After a lengthy hiatus I am returning to research the family of our ancestor Philip Edelen (1598-1657), rector of St John Zachary and St Michael Bassishaw, London, and Denham, Buckinghamshire, especially that of his wife's parents, Thomas Offley (1564-1630), esquire, and Anne Clitherow Offley (1576-1637), who were buried in the vault of St Andrew Undershaft Church, London. Also pursuing the family of Anne's great-grandfather Roger Chaloner (d. 1550), esquire, who was buried beneath his pew in the chancel of the Church of St Dunstan in the East, London.|
One of my favorite discoveries, albeit on the Protestant side of my family, was locating the burial place of my 4th-great-grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who died during a yellow fever epidemic in Norfolk, Virginia, and whose 5th-great-grandparents, Thomas Symes (1621-1670) and his wife Amy Bridges Symes (1621-1662), were buried in a vault beneath the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire.
