I am trying to find out more about my grandparents Hyman and Mathilda YOTES.
There are buried At Mt. Zion Cemetery in Masbeth Queens NY with the First
United Pokaminer Congregation. There is no information at the cemetery about
this organization other then it longer exists. I can not find it on the WPA list.
If anyone has information about this I would appreciate it if you could contact
me @ Thank you.>>>
