Aaron Fink asks whether the name of the burial society plot indicates
that the deceased came >from that town.

I posted a similar question to this group a few years ago and the
consensus was that burial in the plot owned by a landsmanshaft was not
necessarily an indication of membership in that society. Burial plots
could, I gather, be bought >from landsmanshaft members by non-members.

That said, it's a good guess that the person in question had some sort
of relationship with a member of the landsmanshaft, so it's a lead worth
