|Bio and Links|
Born in 1945 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 among others including:Sisters of the Atonment at Graymoor also Hillside, and Old VanCortlandtville, and Assumption cemeteries in Cortlandt Manor NY,
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.

Your most welcome. Always look to the past, because it shapes you for the future.

Thank you for finding my great grandfather's grave, he was married to Matilda Heady. I will be visiting soon and now I will be able to locate him and maybe my g-grandmother too. my ancestors on my grandmothers, (Adeline Odell Barger) and grandfather (Alonzo Barger) are all here; my Parents too, behind the church, Troy and Ida (Barger) Graves.
Thank you again.

And the links work. I'll add at some points links to Sr Rose for the memorials I have created.

Thank you for visiting his memorial, I'm so touched by everyone who has stopped by to see him.

You're welcome. I did upload both front and back, the hebrew is transcribed in the caption. Only three pictures show, but the others are one click away.

Thank you so much for sending me the e-mail about the Memorial Day Service at Fishkill Supply Depot. I really appreciated it, and I forwarded it to my cousin and son. If you ever need my DNA to identify the remains of Josiah Graves, Sr., I would be only too happy to give it. I entered the DAR in 2012 with Josiah Graves, Sr., as my ancestor. Prior to that, he had not been recognized by the DAR/SAR. You can reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I agree. I found that quite shocking as well. I'm sure there are reasons for it, but it was strange to see it!
Hi Gene, I have been working on my family tree and spend alot of time in Sunset, Assumption, Hillside, Cedar Hill and Bethel in Croton. I will def help on my quests I don't always think to check the other requests but I'm going to bring lists with me when I go. I'm glad to help because it's been very important to me and I appreciate all the effort other members around the country have put in helping me fill in branches of my family tree.

|Edward Dunscombe||RE: St. Mary's convent|
Wonder why they removed the stones in the first place?
|Ruth Griffin||Benjamin Horton, Jr.|
