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: Deletion
Why on earth would I feel superior in quoting a rule? I only put that in my message because I was getting a lot of replies back from people asking why they needed to delete their memorial as opposed to the other person deleting theirs. I do not look at a member's page to see how long they are a member before sending a correction.

Please try and understand that I am simply trying to help there. What do I gain from having a memorial deleted or merged? I have no horse in the race.

RE: I work collaboratively with Floral Designer and Time traveler
That's perfectly fine. I cannot request that though; you or the other memorial owner have to do that.

Who is this guy and why is he trying to cause everyone so much trouble? I reported him for harassment!

And your insinuation that I am deciding what should be deleted is a little much. The rules on F-A-G state that the older memorial stays regardless of how much info the newer one has. I'm surprised you don't know this since you felt the need to tell me about the rule regarding the memorial name must show exactly what is on the stone.

RE: Maryknoll Sisters
Mr. Baumwoll, since you have a substantial number of memorials on F-A-G, you are probably aware that I must contact the owner of the memorial and wait before I can contact F-A-G. I will absolutely do so if the owners of the memorials are not willing to correct the issues.

I would also hope that one would simply not delete their memorials but rather "self-merge". Is there a reason why you cannot move your photograph to the other memorial?

Hello Gene,

I have some interesting information on the Ackerman's at the Ackerman cemetery. Is your email address still the one posted here on Find A Grave?

I was interested in your comment about flowers on Jewish graves; when I set up, on findagrave, a very strict Orthodox Jewish Cemetery near my home, I put something in the cemetery description page about not leaving tokens on memorial pages having floral tributes, but the admins wouldn’t allow it. Just shows how little they know about burial customs and cemeteries!Many of our Jew's cemeteries are bereft of even a blade of grass.
We even find some contributors adding things like a Cross-and there’s one ‘serial poster’ who adds verses from the New Testament on pages for Jewish people!

RE: Anna Marshall in Amawalk
The polished stones for Anna Griffen and Andrew Marshall were especially nice ones in the Amawalk cemetery. Their monuments have the have survived the past 100 years incredibly well, while neighboring stones of a similar age are sometimes hard to read.

The size of the Quaker section of Amawalk attests to the large number of Quaker families which settled in the area since the mid-1700s. For anyone familiar with Westchester/Yorktown history, he or she would recognize many familiar names in addition to the Griffens, such as Tompkins, Purdy, Underhill, and Conklin.

Anna and Andrew Griffen were previous owners of the house on Croton Lake (Turkey Mountain), in Yorktown Heights were I grew up.
