There is also a King David(s) Benevolent Society at the Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. I am familiar with this burial society. It was formerly the David Lodge #5, which was part of defunct fraternal organization, called Kesher Shel Barzel.
There is a small file, on the Davids Benevolent Society, on microfilm at the Center for Jewish History.

It it possible that they confused the name of the cemetery with the name of the burial society in whose section they are buried within a larger cemetery? My ancestors are buried in the Crown of David Sick and Benevolent Association section of Mount Zion Cemetery in Queens; it appears this burial society also purchased sections of other Queens cemeteries (Montefiore, Mount Carmel, etc.).
