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.

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: Catherine Depew's headstone
Yes, I stood up Catherine Depew's headstone for the pic, but laid it back down to keep it safe. Morris, Abraham, Mary W., and Hester (Depew) Denike's headstones were laying face up in front of James Depew's headstone. Along with Catherine, Elizabeth Depew and Jacob Denike's headstones were laying face down. Jacob Denike is the son of Hester Depew and Isaac Denike. According to Isaac's obit., he lived to 101 years old and is buried in Van Cortlandtville Cemetery. Will be hunting for that stone this fall. Feel free to post it if you stumble upon it first. Abraham Depew's memorial has him buried in Van Cortlandtville. I have made a request that he be transferred from there to Hillside.

RE: ahhhh see I didn't read your profile statement
I do appreciate the sentiments of you and others that have posted their concerns. As I said, I'm a work in progress.

RE: Sisters names for findagrave
I usually list them with their birth names. The problem with putting it in parentheses or even in the nickname category, is that search results don't seem to find them. I wish Find A Grave would change that. But I imagine that however you do it, someone will tell you to do it differently!

RE: Speaking your mind !
Being an only child makes speaking my mind come naturally. Not always an endearing quality, but certainly one I can live with and I'm perfectly happy continuing doing it ;) I would never patrol others memorials looking for perceived errors. I take a lot of pride in what I do and will continue doing what I do in the exact same manner. Thanks for writing!

Boswell Memorials
Thanks for letting me know about them. My husband is actually related to Connee Boswell's parents.
He's done much research and it's not true that they are related to James Boswell, the biographer.
