Bio

I was born and raised in Beacon NY, and still live here.My moms fathers family came from Ramapo Rockland county NY. Their last name was Cable or sometimes spelled Cabell. Her mothers maiden name was Hickey,they were from the Beacon area.Until I started to research my family history, I thought the Ostranders my dads family were from Peekskill NY Westchester co.That is where my dad grew up. I found out that they were from Ulster co and Orange counties in NY, the area from Kingston to Newburgh.After joining find a grave I also became a member of the Ostrander family association.I bought the hard cover book "Ostrander" a Genealogical Record which has been a great help in my research along with the information from all you people on find a grave.The funny thing is, at one point my in laws lived in Modena NY,where many of the Ostranders are buried.I would like to thank all of you for your effort and information you have provided, it keeps me searching for more. Please feel free to use any of my photos for your family trees also if you would like a memorial transferred to you I will gladly do so.I photographed my local cemeteries looking for relatives, that`s when I saw what time and vandals had done to many of the monuments,with others taking photos there will always be a record of them for future generations.
