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. A focus of my research has been on the German immigrants who settled in the Ohio River Valley, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein.

One of my favorite discoveries 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. Living in Northern Kentucky has afforded me the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of several of her kinsmen, including Major Thornton Timberlake (1789-1857), treasurer of the Covington & Lexington Turnpike Road Company, as well as the Covington merchants, William Hardia (1784-1865) and William Timberlake (1818-1870). Due to the thoughtful contributions of photo volunteers in the U.K., I have been able to see the burial sites of some of Sarah Ann's ancestors, notably her 5th-great-grandparents, Thomas Symes (c.1621-1670) and his wife Amy Bridges Symes (1621-1662), who were buried in the chancel of St Michael's Church at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire, as well as her 6th-great-grandfather John Symes (1573-1661), who was buried in the chancel of St Peter's Church at Frampton Cotterell, also in Gloucestershire. Henry Timberlake (d. 1625), the first of that surname to reside in Virginia, was buried in the chancel of St Peter's Church at Titchfield in Hampshire.

Anthony Thorold - again
Thanks for your message. I was pleased to be able to actually get inside St Mary's church on this visit. Always been locked up in the past.

Regarding Anthony's siblings - it would appear that his father William married twice, therefore it is quite possible that there were more children than just Anthony and William. Look forward to hearing from you again sometime

Anthony Thorold of Marston
Hello Todd,

Regarding the above chap, you will see I have added photographs of his tomb in Marston Church to his memorial.

I recently spent some weeks in Lincolnshire and, amongst others, visited another church just south of Lincoln in the village of Harmston. It appears that, according to a grave marker in Harmston Church belonging to Sir George Thorold, that Anthony, the son of William from Marston only had one brother, also named William, who was gifted the manor of Harston by William Senior. You have several other siblings recorded for Anthony and I wondered if the grave marker was incorrect ?

Regards, Yvonne

Beautiful Job Todd
I just found this and it is marvelous. I wonder if anyone transribed the obituary on Hugus deLusignan's grave. Also where can I get the little moving pics that some have put on. I work in genealogy so much. Thank yo for doing these things for everyone.
Very Sincerely,
Nanc J Ramsey, Norris

Weavers in Germantown VA
First of all, Thank you for all the work I see you have documented.
I am searching for Sarah Weaver B 1730 Germanna, Farquier, Va and D. 1798 Germantown, Goochland. Were these two towns the same location? The dates would work if Tilman Weaver were a father of Sarah but I only see you have listed one child for Tilman. Perhaps he had brothers? I assume there were more? Thanks for any insight

Ralph Lawson 1623 @ St,Anne
Is your source a headstone in the churchyard or
written records in the Parish? I just threw the
name & date in find a grave and Ralph appeared.
I was surprised. Any info is always appreciated.

While researching my own family, I found that my 3rd great-grandmother's brother, a Civil War soldier from Ohio, died in Harrodsburg of typhoid at the home of J. W. & Sophia Cardwell. In a pension application, a letter from Cardwell with an interesting letterhead turned up. I added it to your memorial. If you don't find it to your liking, I can remove it. Let me know.

You've helped me in the past with your work on this website. Thanks for all that you do.

You were right. It was a duplicate. I added the info/photo to the other one and deleted mine. I guess it didn't come up when I searched as I didn't put a space between the Von & Wahlde.
