Newspaper article: http://www.bergen.com/psouth/gravesjc199908205.htm : Tiny graveyard (50x100'), off View Place in the Albion section near Valley Road, is being restored by members of B'nai Jeshurun. "The 152-year-old burial ground is believed to be the oldest organized Jewish cemetery in New Jersey. It is the resting place for some of the area's first Jewish residents." [citation: John Chadwick, August 20, 1999, Bergen Record ]. Franklin Lakes resident Mitchell Knapp, donated the use of his landscaping company, Scenic Landscaping of Wanaque, and paid for removing diseased trees and disposing of the debris in 1998. Additional stones were found during the cleanup. Some have English inscriptions: family names of Goodhorn and Rosenstein. Clifton public works crew cleaned site in 1999.
