BURIAL SITE:

  • There are two unrelated gravesites still extant there about 15 yards apart, Binder and Lieberman. It seems reasonable that the site was designated to be a formal Jewish cemetery but was not properly developed since the Colony failed after four years and the land sold to non-Jews Today, the stones are respectfully cared for by the dairy farm owner with metal cages around the stones to prevent cows from scratch on the stones. There were four deaths during the period, two children and two adults. Ground penetrating radar studies to locate the other two have not been done.  Source Jerry Klinger [Sep 2015]

"Burials in Aultorest began in 1929, but the Mountain View section dates back to the late 1800s. Unfortunately, the records from Mountain View were not extant and Aultorest had to reconstruct those burials from tombstones. Therefore, there are unmarked burials in the Mountain View section and there is no means to determine who they might have been." [August 2005]
