Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of Noah Baumwoll 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. 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 utter 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

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.

Editing a mis-spelled word
Dear Mr. Baumwoll,
I am member #48086776, and the reason for this message is that I had mis-spelled a word on grave memorial #123121734. In the area where it says Leave Flowers and a Message, dated June 8th, I had typed in "miss", the correct word should be "missed". Could you please edit that, as I can not figure out how to do it. I would appreciate your help.
Thank you,
Richard V.

Wessells grave
I emailed you a letter explaining what happened when Find A Grave sent you notification of my request to delete the request for a grave picture submitted by Gene Baumwoll. They have since removed the request. The email I sent to was returned to me as Remote host said 554 message not allowed. I have been decorating vets grave for the American Legion since 1953.

Dear Gene,
Thank you for the 'heads-up'. You jolted me out of a distracted frame of mind..I had confused the generations and had thought that I'd fixed it, but clearly not really. Since he is a relative, I ought to have thought about it sooner. I think that it is fixed now. Thanks,

Thanks for the heads up on the 2 Wws in Flewellin. The book listed them differently unfortunately and it never occurred to me to check the cemetery listing for Flewwelin. Will delete the duplicates.
