Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived since 1998 in the Historic Licking Riverside District of Covington, directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. I spent much of my first two years on Find A Grave concentrating on the Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in such large numbers throughout the Ohio River Valley. 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 their son Friedrich der Große (1712-1786), König von Preußen.

My primary research interest at present is in the gentry families of colonial Maryland and Virginia, their descendants in Kentucky, and their antecedents in the British Isles. I'm currently focused on the ancestry of my grandmother Luetta Crenshaw, especially her 2nd-great-grandparents John Abraham Rhodes (1794-1861) and Louisa Edelen Rhodes (1794-1877). Some of my favorite ancestors to research on that side of the family include Dr Stephen Goffe (1605-1681), a royalist agent during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, whose abandoned wife Penelope Blount was a granddaughter of the Elizabethan and Jacobean courtier Penelope Devereux (1563-1607). Another is Mistress Frances Rhodes (d. 1710), who came to Maryland in 1671 as a companion of Jane, Lady Baltimore (1633-1700), and whose illegitimate son John Rhodes (c.1684-1764) was likely fathered by Charles, 3rd Lord Baltimore (1637-1715).

NOTE. If requesting the change of a year for a pre-1752 date please take note that the legal year in England and its dependents began on Lady Day [March 25th] and not on January 1st. For clarity and consistency I attempt to always use the modern interpretation of which year to use.

Thank you, Todd. Is there a website that you're looking at for the church?
