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. 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 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.

Hi Gene, I did not know Deb or Jack, he was listed in the Nationwide Gravesite Locator in Saratoga National Cemetery where his ashes were interred and given an temporary marker.

Here's a link to the site where I got the information:

Best Regards,

RE: King David Memorial park requests
Dear Gene,

Thanks so much for trying -- and for photographing Lawrence's grave.

When I contacted King David for grave locations, I didn't think to ask if Nancy's grave has a marker. I'll check further, but I won't be surprised if there is none. She was widowed and childless, predeceased by her parents and by Lawrence, her only sibling. She had been living in Toronto for many years. Someone must have arranged for her burial in New York but with no close family, it's very possible that no one ever arranged for a memorial. Very sad.

I searched the section and found a grave marker for Lawrence Leist Feb 8 1944-Sept 16,1977, but none for Nancy. Do you know if a marker was in place?

RE: Your entries to Westchster County Cemetery
You would have a better idea than I do which ones need to be merged. I just transcribed the photos, the cemetery and such was done by the photographer most likely

RE: correction
Ah this would be from the Transcription testing of the Beta app last year. I am actually up in Canada. Someone took photos of the graves and I just transcribed the images. I then transferred the memorials to the photographer. This was the first beta before the transcriber designation was given credit.
