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

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.

Hillside Cemetery
Gene, hope you are well. Is the Hillside Cemetery listed in Peekskill and the one listed in Cortlandt Manor, the same cemetery?

Request To Use a Photo
Mr. Baumwoll:

May I use your photograph in the Hillside Cemetery for the Headstone of Percy S. Hazen ( # 88567261 ) in my tree? She is my 1st cousin 3x removed.

Ann Purdy Palmer at Amawalk
Hi Gene,

The only reference to Ann Palmer as Mary Ann Palmer is from a set of biographies. She is a direct descendant of mine so I'm curious. I will try and send the info to you. # 71168952

Richard W Horn & Sarah Matilda Palmer
Sarah Horn is my 4th great grand aunt. I noticed you had captured a number of foot stones at the Amawalk Cemetery which included Richard and Sarah. Did you by any chance get the names of the others? I was never aware that Richard and Sarah had children but I discovered they lost an infant son which made the paper. Unfortunately, the Field library did not post the date but it at least gives a lead. Richard lost his first wife while living in NYC. I have yet to get my hands on obituaries for either of them. I tried to figure out the foot stones in your photo but couldn't. If you have any info, I would be very grateful!

Thank your for the interesting piece on the Huron and her needless loss of life. It is an interesting story that I was unaware of. Thank you.
