JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Rabbi and wife buried separately? Why #general

My GGP are buried in United Hebrew in the oldest block in the cemetery. They
died in 1911 and 1915 and are buried within the same block, but separately.
The director of the cemetery informed me that at that time, and only for the
oldest blocks in the cemetery, it was the practice for Orthodox to bury men
and women separately. This block has separate men and women's sections.
