|Bio and Links|
I am originally from Peekskill, NY, and have spent a lot of time at the Assumption Cemetery in 2009 and have over 5,000 headstones pictured. Most of the pictures that I have are for headstones with death dates prior to 1970. I also have some pictures from other cemeteries I visit as well.|
If there is one for your family here, please let me know and I will be happy to move the ownership of that memorial to you. Please send me a note under the Edit tab on the memorial you are writing about. If you see one for your family member and you do not want them to have a memorial page, please let me know that also and I will delete it.
My purpose in doing this is to help in trying to make sure that no one is forgotten and also to help family members find their relatives.
Please feel free to use any of the headstone pictures that I post in your genealogy project, no credit is needed. This is about making sure that people are remembered, not about picture ownership.

|Dead weight||RE: Matero Question|
Nope, no relation. I was walking through a cemetery, came across a couple named "Bessier", and thought the name was interesting. So I researched it further. That led me to Joseph Matero's wife's sister who married a man named Bessier.
RE: Matero Question
Once you start working on the family tree, you never want to stop. Are you related to this Matero family? My connection is through Angelo and his wife Antoinette.

|Dead weight||RE: Matero Question|
This stuff genealogy is so addicting. I found the Materos through Violet's (Joseph's wife) sister's married name. I found some Esslingers in the cemetery I meander through and thought it was an interesting name. So I made a note to delve further into it.
That was three days ago. I don't think I've gotten off this computer except to sleep. lol
You sent me a message and asked about a Michael Matero on FindAGrave. The 3 Michael's on FindAGrave are not related (that I know of)to the Matero family in the Bethel Cemetery entries. The Joseph that you sent me a link off of did have a brother Michael, but he lived his life in California and is not on FindAGrave. Rich

Thank you so much for transferring the Kane and Kelly memorials to me. I appreciate your work in creating and providing pictures for these.

You are very welcome. joiseygirl
I found a picture you took of what I think are my great grandparents at assumption cemetery, Andrew & Josephine Pastore. Do you have more information about the headstones or do you just take the pictures? Unfortunately i do not know if it is them or not. The dates look correct but that side of my family I am not too familiar with.

In Sunset cemetery here in Montrose, She was quite an accomplished suffragette who led an interesting life. her Obit from the Highland Democrat tells us she was also a black widow with at least 3 dead husbands...I sent you an edit suggestion with this hopefully to add the her memorial.

I just deleted the Westchester County WPA Veterans service card on this Edward's memorial and re entered it as "OTHER" it still took first position.
I believe YOU can change photo order
|Gene Baumwoll CSW||RE: Cards|
If I had it was an error- I almost always mark them as other- Please let me know who I will delete and re post I believe you can change the order of photos as they appear on your own memorials-
Thanks for the transfer. You've done an awesome job here with Assuption Cemetery!
