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.

Antoinette Lent
I thank you for posting the burials in LENT Cemetery.

You have Antoinette as the spouse of Leonides, but I believe her to be his sister. Census records of 1860 and 1870 have them living in the same place (recorded as Cynthia in 1860, but Antoinette in 1870-1880). Their parents were David H and Miriam TRAVIS Lent.

RE: Deborah Bedell Conklin's grave
The photos you added are much appreciated. Very clever to add the plot map and area of burial in lieu of the missing stone. Thank you so much.

Hey Gene,

I really appreciate you going the extra mile to identify the grave sites of the Bedell family in the East-Yard Cemetery. Keep up the good work.

No problem Gene! I've been reading through the old newspapers and have found a number of obits.

Sisters Of The Atonement Cemetery
Just found my aunts grave. She was Sister Paul Eugene Faryna, who died in 1961 in New York. We had never seen a photo if her grave until now. Seeing the photo brought back so many wonderful memories of my auntie who was a Nun. She was with the Sisters of The Atonement in Edmonton Alberta Canada and then went to New York. I was 10 when she died. Thankyou Gene for taking the time to research this cemetery, the photos and offering up a prayer for my aunt and our family. Sincerely Pat Faryna Langridge. Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.
