Bio Photo בעזרת השם יתברך

Denver native and lifelong resident. Born in 5745 (1985). Long fascinated by cemeteries and the history therein.

I am grateful for Find A Grave, which facilitates acts of kindness in unique ways, including its photo volunteer program, thanks to which I have seen the graves of several relatives for the first time. This is in addition to a general spirit of goodwill and collaboration I have experienced among members. Here on a site dedicated to the dead, the living help out the living... the unifying power of the internet!

I've been fortunate to journey to sacred burial sites throughout the Holy Land, Europe, and America. Visiting the graves of tzaddikim and one's ancestors is an important, ancient rite in my faith. In a prayer from Likutey Tefillos I:33 we ask Hashem that we merit to regularly visit the graves of tzaddikim.

By the grace of G-d, my ultimate dream came true in September 2013, reciting the 10 Psalms comprising the Tikkun HaKlali at the Uman gravesite of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, in the Ukraine. The river that cleanses from all stains. There is nothing greater than this, an eternal tikkun for one's soul.

(ספר המידות ערך "צדיק" סעיף קע"ג)

Thank you
Thanks for the suggestion for the obscured father's name on Isaac Miller's (109807895) stone. I really appreciate it. I may have to take a trip out there again if I'm over in B'nai Israel cemetery to see if I can get a non-obscured photo.

Louis, Alta, & Willam Silver
Thank you very much for taking and posting the photo of the tombstone of Louis, Alta, and William Silver.

Louis' older brother Abba Ze'ev brought his large family from NYC to Pueblo as part of the Industrial Removal Office's mission to take Jews out of the NY ghetto and resettle them in small towns across America.

Unfortunately Abba Ze'ev died a few months after arriving in Pueblo. Shortly after, his wife took their eight children back to NYC. Abba Ze'ev is buried in Pueblo.

The importance of the photo that you took lies in Oulis and Alta's son William. We now know that William's Hebrew name was Abba Ze'ev and that he was named for his uncle. William was a 2ns Lt in the 16th Infantry, First Division of the first Army and fought through the campaigns in North Africa, Italy, and the Normandy invasion of DDay. I believe that he died in combat in the Hurtgen Forest near Hamich, Germany.

I've shared this information with an elderly family member of William's and it warmed her heart.

So again, thank you for the photograph.

Steve

RE: Sally Levin
You are welcome. Glad I could help. Do you know what the meaning is of all the little rocks on the gravemarker?

RE: R' Rosencrantz
I am happy I could do this for you. It took 2 visits for me to figure out the reflection and sun position challenges, I am not an expert photographer. (-: Going back right after the sun went behind the Flatirons (mountains in the background) helped a lot. Peter Israel Rosencrantz's polished black granite headstone is so beautiful, it was my pleasure. Take care, Amy

Thanks again for another great photo AJ. Also, I really appreciate the closeup so we can translate the Hebrew.

RE: Many thanks
you are very welcome! It's good to know that there are people who care about these graves. I wish Mikveh Israel #3 was more accessible, but at least it's not trashed or overgrown like many old cemeteries.

Thanks so much for taking the photos of Jennie Morrow and her son Harry at Fairmount Cemetery in Denver, Find A Grave Memorial# 31798996. I really appreciate it. Jennie's husband was Matthew. He is buried in Ohio. He was in Co I, 120th OVI in the Civil War. I have been researching the 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry for the last 11 yrs in order to identify the men. I would like permission to use your photos on my site and on any CD or print copy of my research that I will give to the Wayne County library in Wooster OH. I always give credit for the photos.
Thanks for any help.

RE: Twerskis
Thank you so much for thinking of me. The photos are wonderful and I enjoyed looking at them. I love the black and white images. I shared the link with my friend who helped me with the translations.
