|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 primary interest is photographing the surviving Grabinschriften of the German immigrants who settled in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region, especially the members of the Deutsche Pionier-Verein. The first big break in my German research came in 1991 when I identified the birthplace of my 4th-great-grandparents, Johann Michael Hillerich (1795-1879) and his wife Anna Apollonia Ritter Hillerich (1799-1876). Michael's grandfather Johann Lorenz Hillerich (1734-1798), his great-grandfather Albert Hillerich (1706-1765), and his 2nd-great-grandfather Paulus Ostner (d. 1751) were all foresters and gamekeepers for Fürst Karl Thomas zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1714-1789).|
