Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always found cemeteries interesting.
I've researched a few families' history and genealogy, often because of some unrelated circumstance or event.

Currently I'm researching the family members of a NYC harpmaker named Rocco Bruno who died in 1899. I have a harp he rebuilt and I'm hoping to find some surviving family members who might know more about his work.

I live in a historic house and have also researched the family who built and inhabited it. I will eventually get memorials built for these folks in case someone else out there is also looking for information on William Cornelius Hasbrouck and his decendents.

As I take volunteer photos I have been trying to take a few nearby as well. When I have a little time I'll start building memorials for these people too. If I have built one for a family member of yours, please request a transfer. I would be very happy to see these virtual memorials recognised by their surviving family.

Gertrude Franks Harper 41764200

I think I already left you this message and if I did I do apologize. I have added Gertrudes parents to the website. They are Edward Franks 81165838 and Cornelia Woodruff 81166174. Could you kindly link her to them?

WTC Photo Request

Since you have not responded to my request to post your picture of Paul Ruback on his WTC listing, I have posted the pictures of his gravesite on his WTC listing, giving you proper credit for taking these photos. There will be many tributes posted to these heroes in time for the Sept 11 anniversary.

I hope no harm was done by my action, since I gave you credit for taking these photos.

If you wish for me to remove the Paul Ruback gravesite photo and you to post the photo on his WTC listing, please let me know.

Thanks again for taking your photo of Paul's gravesite.

Riverside Cemetery Marlboro
I see that you have some confusion in regards to the above cemetery. Riverside Cemetery is actually the southern part of the Presbyterian cemetery on Rte 9W. If you stand at Bloom St. next to the library, look across at the cemetery. You will see a grassy lane that goes through the cemetery where there aren't any stones. To the right (southern) of that grassy lane is Riverside and to the left (northern) is the Presbyterian Cemetery. Apparently, there are two different parcels of land. The Dubois family owned the northern part and gave this to the Presbyterian Church for a cemetery. This was explained to me by the Marlboro Historian.
