No, but it sounds like he had a definite connection with the (a?)
Catholic group of Queens out of Maryland.
There was a big migration of English-speaking Catholics
from Maryland to Kentucky early in the 1800s.
Louisville has a big Catholic community (at least for the South)
that's been there for a very long time.
