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.

Thanks so much for the flag on both Hiram and Charles Wessells' pages as well as the additions you just made. Btw, I enjoyed looking up the history of Company K.

Hiram Briggs
Hi Gene, I had hoped to get to Bethel Cemetery last summer, but never made it. In the meantime, I found Hiram Briggs' mother's last name. She is Catherine Van Tassel. I'm still working on the dates. I would be most pleased if you would add her name. Thanks.

RE: I sent you an edit on a Hillside entry
Yes it is a duplicate. Someone named Kim put it up long after we did. We are leaving ours as it is a close relative

RE: Jeremiah Pugsley
Thanks Gene! You have opened my eyes as I had no idea about these promotions in rank. I leave it in your trusty hands. I'm definitely interested in hearing more. Jeremiah is my 2nd cousin 5 x removed. Many thanks!

Jeremiah Pugsley
Hi Gene,

Jeremiah Pugsley # 27424231
I came across military records for the state of New York which mention Jeremiah Pugsley as a captain in 1843. The interesting part is that he was listed as a lieutenant when he was discharged from service after the Civil War. There is a marker on his grave that lists him as a lieutenant. Who would be the contact to start a dialogue on his proper rank? Almost every historical record mentions him reaching the ranks of captain as well.

Best, Sarah

As always many thanks for the information you give me. Makes me look great. Sometimes I have relatives contact me saying they think I must be a relative because I know so much, knowing full well I owe it to other people. YOU are some of my other peoples. I try to credit you for everything you send and if you find a spot I didn't you know it was unintentional.
