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: Jean Parker Shepherd
I was a great fan of Shep. I am almost 62 and as a teen I used to listen to him with my 8 transistor radio under my pillow at night. Sometimes I got caught, but still listened when I could. After that was Long John Nebel, who I also enjoyed. I read one of his books talking about some of his radio programs.

Although he may be gone from this world, I am glad I can still listen to Shep on
I still like to listen before bed time, and when the theme music starts to play, I am 16 or so again listening to his stories, like the time he was attached by peacocks. I did get to meet him in 1971/2 at Rider Collage. He told the story how he needed to sneak into his apartment every day in order to surprise the cockroaches.
I ask him if I gave him a pen and a piece of paper would he sign it. He asked me "What? The pen or the paper?" Funny and slightly embarrassing (for me) at the same time.

I appreciate your message. I am glad you got in touch with me just to say thanks, because I needed to get him the famous person status he deserved.

RE: Eliza Cole Delancy
I love stories like this, and very happy in some way they are reunited. If not in a cemetery, then on Find A Grave. He also fits in with sponsoring a Veteran each Veteran's Day, just a day early.

Thank you for the connecting the two, along with their son. Such a nice thing to do as well.

No, to the best of my knowledge, I am not family, nor is my husband.

I'll try again. Look forward to meeting you.
I just got kicked off their Facebook site.
My sin? I wrote we're all volunteers yet some of us have taken on the characteristics of hoarders. These graves aren't trophies they need to be passed on to those who loved them in life.
I'm going to apply again.
Go to her site and click on the Facebook page and request to be added.

I've added you to my friends list. We have something or someone in common. I'm in Kentucky. Find A Grave has a big problem and she has a name.

RE: Jacob and Anna Fast edits
I try not to be too picky myself. My only beef with Find A Grave is that recently one of the staff on Ancestry removed all the names in a virtual cemetery of mine (which were mostly ones I had created) and combined them, without my knowledge, into one memorial - which now I can't find..... All of a sudden, it was empty! I had to hunt down this information and get an explanation. I wasn't happy about it, and a lot of time wasted, and valuable information lost. But I decided I wasn't going to waste more time trying to undo it or convince this person that they were wrong.

Aside from that, it's fun or I wouldn't do it. I've made several friends in my vicinity through this. If you're ever in Kansas, I'd meet you for Dim Sum!

I must make a point to travel to Canada and find these cemeteries of my relatives. I'm fortunate to have ancestors who were into genealogy long before my birth.

RE: enjoyed your virtual cemetery
Also thank you for the burial information. I've added that as well. It's fun filling in some of the mysteries surrounding my family's story.

Thank you so much for the edits and the grave photos for Jacob and Anna Fast! Jacob and my grandfather worked on an extensive family history (Jacob finished after my grandfather's passing) of my grandmother's people. If you find any more information, please don't hesitate to add more edits.
