    Rabbi Zalman Bauer of Wilkes Berry, PA was the personal gabbi (sexton) of Rebbe Yisroel Friedman (Chortkover Rebbe) prior to coming to the United States. Do you know where he was buried?

    The Rebbe also sent Rav Yaakov Geller to serve the Chortkover community in Galveston, TX. Rav Geller was niftar c. 1930, any idea where he was buried?
