Can the group help, please ?
I am researching the KAPATOVSKY family, one of whose members, Samuel
KAPATOVSKY (Hebrew name Shmuel Baruch, also known as Sam Kay), died in
Manchester in 1919.

Part of the inscription on his grave reads:
"also mourned by the Brethren of the Ancient Order of Maccabeans, Mount
Horeb Beacon No 9".

My questions:
Where can I find information about this organisation ?
If they kept records, where are they ?
What was special about Mount Horeb Beacon No.9 ?
Does anyone have any knowledge about Sam ?
