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 are meant to remember and honor the 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: Fred De Ronda @Hillside Peekskill
Thank you Gene for the offering of the above's obituary. To be clear as we all know, obits are written by the surviving relatives and as is often the case, they don't have the facts right. Such isvrhe case here. Fred was born 1869. The Feb monrh is right. The day is questionable. His first wife, per the obit, is wrong. His mother's maiden name was Coxon. His father was as I have it, William Henry De Ronde (dutch sound ah). There has never been a Clinton De Ronde. All of the above is precisely why I never include obits in a bio. They too often mislead or confuse the reader.
On a positive note. You're offering brought me to review ny research and I am now of the belief that Minnie "was not" Fred's first wife. In the 1900 census she claims to not have any children. In the same census Fred has 3 of his children with him.
Need to work on that bit of information.

Thank you so much. I'll add it soon. I've been overwhelmed with work but I'll get my Findagrave memorials updated soon. I'm so behind! :) Thank you again for all that you do.

Best wishes,

There are many Civil War and Revolutionary War soldiers in Sparta Cemetery, Revolutionary Road, Ossining... My 2nd Great Grandfather and his brother; William See & Martin Van Buren See to name two. There is so much history, the men of these two wars buried there if you are interested.

RE: Aaron Whipple Rand
I switched the photographs as you requested but then I checked who was actually interred in the plot with Emily & Henry (Sycamore, section 53, lot 3746).

There are only TWO other people there: Catherine G. Rand and Ella C.Rand. Aaron is NOT in that plot.

He is actually in Maple plot, section 39, lot 2504. Based on the diagram I do not believe there is a memorial stone there. Perhaps that is why his name (& his wife & children) are named on the stone in Sycamore.

I can check Maple again for you. As the genealogy volunteer for Woodlawn I have access to the aerial shots which help me find the graves.

Laura P. Tuttle, Cedar Hill Cemetery
Gene, thank you for the information about Laura Tuttle, buried at the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Montrose. I'd like to know how you found her -- I've searched the cemetery numerous times and have never found a marker. That's no surprise to me -- I have a family plot there with 8 family members buried there but markers for only 2. Are you relying on the obiturary?
