Burial Society Washington Cemetery - Bnai Menasse or Menasche #usa

Alan Reische

I've finally penetrated my g/grandfather's burial information at Washington; he was listed under the Surname 'Lisk'.

Anyway, the very helpful man I spoke to said that both his burial plot and the plot of his son Joseph was administered by B'Nai Menasse or Menasche, which his records show subsequently was absorbed by Nachlas Zwie Linas Hasedke. Are these names familiar to any Genners? What region or shtetl does the original congregation or society relate to? I have run them through the burial society database and Google generally with no results except for the Indian Jews, which does not relate to my search, and a reference to a then- existing (1902) congregation at 89 Ridge Street. My g/grandfather and family originally lived on Ridge Street, so there is a strong tie..
