Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my dad John Joseph "JJ" Farley and my mom Arlene Ida Wittenberg and other family members that I have linked together. If the mood strikes, thank you for leaving a flower or token.



Please DO NOT make requests by leaving a message.

Use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to ask for any corrections, updates, or transfers to be made. I need the links the "EDIT" tab provides. Please make sure you're signed in as I need the link to your member page as well.


The 6th option on the "EDIT" tab - "Suggest Any Other Addition or Correction" is a free-form e-mail sent to the manager of the memorial (even when they have their e-mail address hidden from public view) and should be used when -

1. you'd like bio info added (or corrected),
2. you'd like to request a transfer,
3. anything that requires an explanation or source info; or if you'd like to contact the member without leaving a public message or if their messages are disabled.



The "EDITS" tab on the top part of your profile page is NOT the same as the "EDIT" tab on each memorial page. This is where you will check on the status of most of the edits you request as well as accepting or declining most of the edits sent to you.


Please read the FAQ's!(AKA - Help with FAG) There have been many changes to the FAQ's lately, please re-read them. If you can't find an answer or if what you're looking for isn't clear, please come to the Discussion Forums. There are many people there with years of experience on this website and are more than happy to help.


I do not link to memorials that are - "Burial: Unknown Location". Find the grave first, then we add all the other info.


I add these memorials as a tribute to those who have passed as well as allowing friends and relatives who cannot travel to "visit" and pay their respects.

All information shown on the memorials I create, has been taken from obituaries, provided by another member, was available on the funeral home website or taken from SSDI.


Many thanks to all the volunteers who have added their hard work, love and sanity to create these memorials. Without your dogged trekking through brush, nettles, rain, snow, ornery cemetery attendants, dusty historical registers and the like to photograph and record the resting places of those that have gone on before us, we would not have this website.


My heartfelt thanks to bill for sponsoring several of my family's memorials. He is a very kind man with a wicked sense of humor.

RE: Problem Photo Requests
Ahh, I wasn't aware the process worked as you describe. My understanding is that the message goes back to the requestor and it is the option of the requestor to remove their requrest after reviewing the noted response. Apologies if that is not the case. There are some outstanding requests where the problem noted is that the photo request has already been fulfilled, but the request languishes on the list of photo requests. Thanks, Helen

RE: Ramon Accetella
I see the headstone photo is on both records. One thing that caught my eye was the note about being in the Coast Guard. I maintain a list of all veterans buried in the cemetery and provide it to the Town of Islip veterans service office to make sure that the graves get a flag on Memorial day and Vets Day, also we have a veteran insert in the church bulletin for those 2 weekends. Can you provide any campaigns Ramon was in while a member of the Coast Guard? thanks Bill

Thank you for your email. For right now I am just using the information from the cemetery web site. Every now and then I run across an entry where I think the spelling is wrong and I go to SSDI on ancestry (if recent enough) to check. (I do know about the new rules SSA implemented, which sucks! LOL) I do use family search, legacy, genealogy bank, genweb sites, etc. etc. I have been working on my husband's family tree and my own for a few years and have learned to take advantage of many sites. I love the states that allow people to view the actual death certificates. Find-a-Grave is a hobby but a very passionate one!! After I finish with St. John Cemetery, I plan on going thru the entire list on findagrave and adding birth and actual death dates and whatever family links can be found. I also plan on talking with the staff and try to get some of the errors on their list fixed. Thanks again for contacting me. I really do appreciate it!

RE: James White
lol yes that's who it was. I just came across her name while I was adding her name to the spreadsheet that i'm sending over to the cemeterian at st. patrick cemetery. rosemary is buried in sec 3 with:

Halpin Family
Roy Walker
Paul, Charlotte, Rosemary, John, Charlotte, & Mary Halpin

send the spreadsheet however you have it set up already. if you don't have one made don't make one b/c next week i'll be photographing sec 6, which is where I believe a lg majority of those you need pics for are located, also prob sec 7. either way i'll let you know when I add pics so you can take them out of your need pics virtual cemetery.

uhh I was sooo annoyed to hear about the weather. now they are saying snow for Tuesday. crazy you're right it def didn't come in like a lamb, lol. but from previous years we've had I'd say this is the best so far.

RE: James White
lol you are too funny!! That sounds just like my sister's cat :)

I had to reread what you wrote to figure out what whoever wrote the obit was talking about. when I first read it I was like "wait, so they buried her at st. Patrick and then reburied her at ..." so I reread and that's when I realized they meant that they went to st. Patrick church first and then proceeded to the cemetery.

I added a picture to one of your memorials at st. Patrick yesterday or the day before and I can't remember who it was. uhhh so annoying I meant to tell you but figured I would upload all the pics I have first so as not to get side tracked and then let you know. but after uploading 100 people I completely forgot her name. The only thing I can remember is that it was a woman, she passed away between 2012 and 2014, she's buried within a large family plot and she's in section 3.

I am soo glad it's starting to get nice outside. I went to st. Patrick today and bc it was so windy it was actually cold. but whenever the wind died it felt great!! by the time I got home my face looked sunburned, lol, but a few hrs later it's back to normal. I completely forgot to put sunblock on. I guess i'm just not in that mode yet :)

do you have any pics you need from that cemetery? don't put in a request just let me know who you are looking for. I'm going to be taking pics for those in section 6 next week. right now im uploading pics for sec 3 and 4. there are a few that passed within the last 5 yrs so they might be yours. ttyl
