"The surviving Orthodox congregation (Congregation Zvi Jacob, Memorial Parkway, Utica) maintains the cemetery on Watson Place in Utica as well as the House of Jacob, Tifereth Zvi, and I believe the Shaarei Tefilah cemeteries on Woods Road in Whitesboro. The Conservative congregation (Temple Beth El, Genesee Street, Utica) maintains not only its cemetery on Woods Road in Whitesboro but also the adjacent House of Israel cemetery and I believe the Jonathan Lodge cemetery on Woods Road. The Reform congregation (Temple Emmanuel, Genesee Street, Utica) has its cemetery on Roberts Road] in New Hartford, NY."
