JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Cemetery in Cotopaxi, CO #general

I tried entering "Cotopaxi Jews >from Russia" in the most popular
seach engiine (Google) and came up with 379 hits. Checking out some
of the most promising articles reveals lots of information about the
immigration. Adding the word "cemetery" gave even more detailed
information which is too extensive to repeat here.

Janette Silverman asked:

A friend asked me to pose this question to the group - she travels
through Cotopaxi, CO several times a year and has visited a cemetery
there which houses what appears to be a mass grave and is labeled "Jews
from Russia" or something similar. Does anyone know what happened
here? Cotopaxi I think is near Leadville.
