Mt. Zion Cemetery - Maspeth (Queens), NY

The Makhnovka Aid Association has two society burial plots in the Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth (Queens), New York. The second one is located on Path 37 Right, gate EL-6 (off of "East Lane"). Here is an overview of the plot:

The burial plot at Path 37, gate EL-6, is entered through this gate. The inscription on the threshold stone says "Chevra Anshei Machnovker Unt. V." (benevolent society of the brotherhood of the people of Makhnovka). The inscription on the gate itself says the same thing in Yiddish.
