the trail or by climbing the mountain bank
just above the foundation.

History: Isaac LeVan is said to be buried
on Neversink Mountain. At his request he
had the side of his coffin left open so if the
devil came to get him he could escape.
Isaac died in 1823 and was involved in a
number of businesses in Reading. Reported
in a Reading newspaper article and
included in Kathy Scogna's Reading
Anniversary Book, 1998.
Observations: The pattern indicates 5 rows
with 6 graves abreast in each except the
3rd row which has 8 graves abreast.
