US Commission No. SLCE000057

Markusovce is located SE of Spisska Nova Ves. Alternate name: Markusfalu. The isolated suburban hillside has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a broken masonry wall without gate. 1-20 19th-20th century marble and sandstone flat shaped tombstones with Hebrew inscriptions are in original locations. The property is used for waste dump or abandoned [unclear]. Adjacent properties are agricultural. Private visitors stop rarely. Pollution and vandalism are moderate threats; vegetation is a serious threat, disturbing stones. Security and weather are minor threats. [date?]

From Barkany's book Zvidovske Nabozenske Obce Na Slovenska: 1 km from village, by side of road leading to Sp. Vlachy, fenced by stone wall, torn in a couple of places is a 7 or 10m wide, 130m long cemetery with 2 rows. Men & women are separate. Tombs at wall are torn down and covered by bushes at wall. Sandstone mostly tombstones. [This is another graveyard completely overgrown, and covered. I waded around in it a little, but only saw one stone, for a Propper.
