Bio and Links
Hometown: Louisville, KY. Very proud of the vital, early history of Louisville and Kentucky, and, via an appreciation passed to me by my paternal grandmother, Elinor Fromang Maloney, very much a history buff, genealogist and amatuer collector.

Important to me to preserve the bits and pieces that make up our history for future generations, whether the tiniest scrap of an old document, the preservation of a single building or the bigger historical picture - that all combine to make up the larger whole of who we were and now are.

Personal, have two old, interconnected buildings in an area of Louisville that has been transforming into a vibrant area of shops, residences and a mix of commercial and idustrial businesses. The primary building, affectionately known as Taj Ma Loney, is a four storey pile of bricks at the moment, built ca. 1849 by German immigrants, and awaiting the major updates that renovation requires. The other, Das Hofhaus, ca. 1840, is a camelback style shotgun house that was renovated in 1997, but still needs some TLC. Housed in both are bits and trinkets that focus on family past, and Louisville, Kentucky, German and Irish items.

RE: Pope message
I thought you sent in the memorial and could make changes to it. This is the way the memorials that I sent in have worked.

Patrick Henry Pope
Here is my source for his middle name:
Encyclopedia of Louisville, edited by John E. Kleber, p. 712-713:
POPE, PATRICK HENRY (b. Louisville, March 17 1806; d. Louisville, May 4, 1841). Lawyer and politician. The eldest son of Worden Pope, a prominent lawyer active in Louisville’s political life, and his wife Elizabeth. In 1827 Patrick began his own law practice in the city. He soon became a popular and successful attorney, His law office was on the north side of Jefferson St., between Sixth and Seventh Streets, and his residence was on Sixth St., between Green (Liberty) and Walnut (Muhammad Ali Blvd.) Streets.
Pope was a Jacksonian Democrat, as was his father. With the aid of his politically prominent family, Pope mounted a successful campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 1832 election. He defeated the talented Henry Crittenden for the Eigth District congressional seat by a majority of 600 votes. Pope served as the youngest member of the Twenty-third Congress from March 4, 1833, to March 3, 1835. In the 1834 congressional election, he was defeated by anti-Jackson Whig William J. Graves of New Castle. Still deeply involved in Louisville politics, Pope then ran and was elected in 1836 to the Kentucky House of Representatives representing Jefferson County.
In 1827 he married Sarah L. Brown (1810-1884), the daughter of James Brown, a wealthy farmer in Jefferson County, and his wife, Urath. Patrick and Sarah Pope had eight children, twins Elizabeth Thruston and Urith Lawrence, James Brown, Mary Emiline, Ellen E., Worden, Mary Anna, and Alfred Thruston.
Pope was buried in the Brown Cemetery on Browns Ln. In Louisville and reinterred in Cave Hill Cemetery on April 20, 1880.
See History of Ohio Falls Cities and Their Counties (Cleveland 1882); The Biographical Encyclopedia of Kentucky of the Dead and Living Men of the Nineteenth Century (Cincinnati 1878); Biographical Directory of the American Congress, 1774-1961 (Washington, D.C. 1961).

Patrick Pope son of Worden Pope
I WOULD BE GLAD TO POST THE PICTURE I TOOK OF PATRICK HENRY POPE'S GRAVE MARKER, SO YOU CAN SEE IT. I HAVE SEEN THE MARKER WITH MY OWN EYES AND KNOW IT IS NOT IN CAVE HILL CEMETERY. IT IS IN THE BROWN/LAWRENCE FAMILY CEMETERY, BROWN PARK, ST. MATTHEWS, JEFFERSON COUNTY, KENTUCKY AND STATES
"PATRICK HENRY POPE, BORN MAR 17 1806; DIED 4 MAY 1841."

Patrick Pope son of Worden Pope
The memorial you created for Patrick "Hamilton" Pope should actually list Patrick Henry Pope as the correct name for Worden's son and he was not buried in Cave Hill Cemetery but in the Brown Family Cemetery, St. Matthews, Jefferson County, Kentucky. I have been to the cemetery and see the grave marker and taken a picture of it.
You will find a memorial for Patrick Henry Pope with a photo of the stone in the Brown Cemetery listings on FindAGrave.
Please take off the incorrect memorial you created for "Patrick Hamilton Pope." The correct name "Patrick Henry Pope" is listed as a son of Worden but your incorrect listing is also there. I am sure you like me would like the information on this site to be as correct as possible.
Thanks, Cindy Nicholls

I enjoy reading old newspapers at the Library of Congress website. I stumbled upon a wedding announcement for Robert W. Bingham and Mary Flagler in the Hopkinsville Kentuckian of 11/7/1916. This little announcement is packed with biographically information about both the bride and the groom. I thought you might like to see it.

Are you sure he's in Western Cemetery? There's another entry with a monument photo from Cave Hill.

Who are the 2 guys in the picture you've added. I assume one of them is William. Which? And who is the other guy?

Hi Mike:

In the info about Jennie Carter Benedict

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi

the head of the Boston Cooking School's name needs to read "Fannie Farmer" and not "Fanny Farmer."

Fannie Farmer was the cook. Her name and fame were used by the candy company Fanny Farmer's.

Common confusion. I only learned the difference the other day on Fannie Merritt Farmer's birthday.

Cheers,

Susan
