Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Golubs and Kopester Society #general

We're just determined that my wife's great grandmother and great
great grandmother (both named GOLUB) were buried at the Baron Hirsch
Cemetery on Staten Island, New York. They were interred within the
KOPESTER burial plot.
Does anyone know what KOPESTER refers to? Is it a town? A
province? A family name?
