Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery, established in 1772 is the second oldest Jewish Cemetery in the state and serves a community which has been significant here since well before the American Revolution. Abraham Cohen and Mordecai Myers, who opened stores in the town in 1762 and 1772 are buried here, as is Heiman Kaminski who arrived in Georgetown in 1856 and was on of its most prominent businessman by the turn of the twentieth century.
The Jewish community has emphasized leadership and public service from the beginning; Abraham Cohen for example, was a member of the committee welcoming President George Washington in 1791. Three of Georgetown's six Jewish mayors are also buried here; Louis S. Enrich (1886-1888), Harold Kaminski (1930-1935) and Sylvan L. Rosen (1948-1961).
