|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 personal research covers a lot of territory, from the pioneer settlement of the Ohio River Valley, the religious dissidents so numerous in New England and Long Island, the gentry and planter families of colonial Maryland and Virginia, and the British forebears of all the above. I've also spent a lot of time photographing the grave markers of German immigrants in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area. When I lived in the Highlands Neighborhood of my hometown I used to enjoy visiting St Louis Cemetery, to see the grave site of my 4th-great-grandparents, Johann Michael Hillerich (1795-1879) and his wife Anna Apollonia Ritter Hillerich (1799-1876). One of my favorite finds was locating the grave site of my 4th-great grandmother Sarah Ann Timberlake Woodfin (1809-1855), who died during a yellow fever outbreak 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, England.|
