Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of a son 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 offer 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

First Presbyterian Church Yorktown
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.

RE: James Croft.
Newspaper obits are sometimes wrong about the place of burial. Even today. They are written before the person is buried.

He is not in the register of deaths, which is fairly reliable. When the person is not in the records, I look for records for the parents, spouse's family, or children, where you often can find who you are looking for. John's parents are in Hillside, although the records don't tell the location. You took a photo of John's father's stone; do you remember where it is?

He is not buried with his brother Matthias,and I didn't find James anywhere. None of Caroline Romer's family seems to be there, either.

RE: Milton
Gene, this isn't my memorial at all. I know nothing about the people buried here and only fulfilled the photo request. Feel free to add any biographical information you may have. I'm sure there are others who might find it useful. Best, Helen

RE: Graymoor Friars cemetery
Hello Gene,

Thank you for your recent note.

I am a member of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement assigned to Vancouver, BC, Canada and receive regular notices of friars deaths along with a obituary card. I hope to turn over my efforts to the Archives of the Friars. Most of the photos come from Obituary cards and my own personal photos. I hope to replace the poor quality photos as I come across better copies. One good place for information would be the Archives at Graymoor, Garrison, NY, 10524-0300 for any existing photos.

Gene, if you do takes some gravestone photos I would appreciate your permission to use a copy for my collection.

Please feel free to use my e-mail address. I've seen your work and only wish I were as talented.

I'm ten years with 'findagrave' but absolutely dumb with a computer. I'm 82 what do you expect? Ha, Ha!

RE: Milton
I had no idea when I fulfilled a request for photos of the headstones of Milton H. Reuben, and his wife Ruth U. Reuben, that there was any association with Pee Wee Herman. I can't confirm or correct any assumptions about the statement made by Eddie Donlin. Best, Helen
