Isaac Glass

Name: Isaac Glass

Family: unknown

There are several stories about Isaac Glass:

Gerald Daniel remembers that Isaac Glass killed himself, which could explain why he was buried separately by the fence.

Rabbi Sager remembers being told by Joe Levitt, who had been told by Sam Fagan, that Isaac Glass was a traveling salesman. He was known as a “drummer”, who may have been passing through town when he passed away and no one knew of any family. Rabbi Sager had no knowledge of it being a suicide.

Whatever the story, and whatever was known about him, Isaac was Jewish. The Beth El community was fulfilling the ancient obligation to provide a proper burial for him.
