Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of a son born in 1978

I have worked as a clinical social worker in the New York State Office of Mental Hygiene- and as a medical social worker at Hospital for Joint Diseases /Orthopedic Institute and St Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital specializing in Home Care. Have had a private practice in psychotherapy and certified in Elder Care/case management, NY State Nursing home evaluator. I moved to Westchester County in 1997 following a long residence in New York's Greenwich Village.
I have discoverd a degree of serenity in visiting the cemeteries in my area, and in providing a service to those who contact me.
There are some amazing stories to be interperted in reading the headstones.

I will only establish memorials of graves I have visited and photographed. During the visit I honor the lives and memory of the deceased and offer a prayer for their descendants health and happiness.

I have adopted Bethel Cemetery in Croton-on Hudson, Old Baptist Church Cemetery in Yorktown, Shrub Oak cemetery, Cedar Hill in Montrose
Kyrias Pupa in Ossining [Many of the headstones in this cemetery include memorials to family members murdered by Nazies in Auschwitz in 1944],

First Hebrew Cemetery in Peekskill, King David Memorial Gardens in Putnam Valley and Rose Hills among others including:Sisters of the Atonment at Graymoor also Hillside, and Old VanCortlandtville, and Assumption cemeteries in Cortlandt Manor NY, Mount St Francis in Peekskill

First Presbyterian Church Yorktown
When I find a Revolutionary War or Civil War grave I try and research that souls's history and include his regimental history and his service record if I can locate it to his biography, This being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
I provide the American Legion with the location of military veterans graves so they can be provided a flag on memorial day

Whenever possible I will try to include photos of couples graves and family plots with Moms and dads with their children.

I believe we are meant to remember and honor people whose graves we visit and add to Findagrave.
Only recently have I been the recipient of the kindness of other members of FindAGrave and have discovered the graves of my Grandfather, and his wives, and learned that he had many brothers. My family has been added to many fold am I am overjoyed.

NOTE: All of my photos are free to all who would like to use them all of my work is voluntary.
Please feel free to share.

RE: REv Bonaventure Koltz
I am not sure why you added the nun's photo to Fr. Bonaventure's memorial. Would you please remove the nun's photo?

Greetings, I am asking you to adjust the photo order on his memorial, moving one of the grave marker photos to the front so it can be seen and the photograph of his sister lower in the order.
Memorial link Thanks. I have been working with Brother Tim on adding grave photographs to all of the friars graves. I have photographed the sister's cemetery over the past 5 years

Hi Gene!

My heart bleeds for the high temperatures you are undergoing. The furnace turned on last night here in Vancouver, BC, Canada! I had to put on another blanket!(Ha, Ha!) Thank you for all your efforts in putting together our project.

Thank You
Hi Gene - thank you for the quality of work that you do and the generous heart with which you do it. I especially appreciate the extra work that you do on Revolutionary War soliders. I'm sure you are helping untold numbers of genealogists and historians! I found you through Capt. Isaac Conklin.

I'm trying to figure out the father of William Conklin (b 18 Sep 1789, d 24 Feb 1863 and is buried in the Nelsonville Cemetery, Cold Spring, Putnam Co. He had a son, Isaac, who I think died about the same time in the same place. Anyway, I'm not sure if there's a relationship between those Conklins and Capt. Isaac Conklin, but that's part of my puzzle. Prior to that they seem to have lived in the Putnam Valley area near Oscawana Lake. The New York woods must have been full of Conklins and most of them had Biblical first names!

Saw your work, and just wanted to pause and say thank you!

Hi Gene, I was looking on Find A Grave and see that I made an error in the transcription on my second Great Grandfather's head stone. It should read, "In the day of need, he served faithfully his country. Inscription reads faithfully served. Can you please set it right? Many thanks Patty

RE: Fr Wallerstein


Speaking of links: We have two friars in our cemetery who have sisters buried in the Sister's cemetery.

Jeremiah Kelliher: Sister Jerome and Sister Elizabeth Kelliher.

Normand Prevost: Sister .?...Prevost Name may be misspelled. I'll look to see if Normand is listed with us.

RE: Fr Wallerstein

Hi Gene!

It's all coming together....."thanks to you"!

I took one of the photos away from Br. Anthony Wallerstein.

I was wondering ...why do some sites with the "RIP" symbol NOT have a headstone?
Also you can choose what site you want for Samuel Cummings. I like the one that has "Socks" his nickname though we can always add it on later if you prefer the duplicate site.
