In 1932, a book was published entitled Yoval: A Symposium upon
the First Fifty Years of the Jewish Farming Colonies of Alliance,
Norma and Brotmanville, New Jersey". Page 10 contains a list titled
"The First Settlers of Alliance Who Arrived in 1882", which sets forth
the names of almost 50 couples. Some appear to be the names they
carried in Russia; most are Americanized names. Other names are
scattered throughout the book, but there is no comprehensive list of residents.
