Bio and Links
Bio Photo For the past several years, I have enjoyed being a volunteer photographer working primarily in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. It is a stunningly beautiful place and a complete respite from the insanity of Manhattan, where I live and work as a copy editor in an ad firm.

BUT--my knees are totally shot--worn by arthritis to bone-on-bone. In a few weeks, I will have double total knee replacement surgery and will therefore be out of commission for quite some time. I will be able once in a while, perhaps, to fulfill requests from photos I have on file. Aside from that, however, I will be inactive until next spring, 2017, at least.--BC Sep 17 2016

In regards to your notes on the photo of all the stones and the possibility of Mary Clyde's surname really being Clymer - I've had a sourced tree for Mary and she related by marriage/blood to the Wilkins and McComb families. Her death records and probate clearly show her name to have been Mary Clyde. That's not to say her maiden name might not be Clymer, but I doubt it is. William Clymer and Jeannie McComb has some sort of link, but that's all I've uncovered so far. Thanks again!

Bob - how are you? Before I forget, I'd like to thank you for the great photos (and info) of the stones on this plot. Just stumbled across them a moment ago.

Thank you for Rose Zelkind
I greatly appreciate your photo of Rose's memorial, especially in light of your knees! It really helps further my finding of possible Zelkind relatives in the NYC area.

Sending you healing thoughts
