    The NYT obituary has him interred in Bayside cemetery, however The Sun says that it took place in Cypress Hills

    Thank you Reb Boruch for putting up this post.

    Rabbi Margolis was according to a few sources, a candidate for the Rav Hakolel after Rav Ash past away, however he unfortionately passed away at a very young age after being here for only two years.

    See on ivelt for more information on Rav Margolis.

    If someone happens to go out to search the Kever, he should please look around to see if somewhere near his Kever is also buried Rav Yehuda Middleman one of the founding Rabbis of the Kalwarier Shul.

    On an expedition today on behalf of the מורשת חכמי אמעריקא we were B”H able to locate the grave of Rabbi Margolis, and although the Kalwarier section is still in a terrible situation with a lot of overturned grave stones. Rabbi Margolis’ garvestone is intact and in a good situation.

    Rabbi Margolis was about to become the Rav Hakolel of NYC after the passing of Rav Ash but he died suddenly at a young age, he was a genius and a great scholar.

    A picture of the gravestone will be sent to the administrator who should hopefully put it up.

    הרב הצדיק
    ר’ יצחק בה”ר אליהו מרגליות
    בעהמ”ח מעוז התלמוד וספורי ישורין
    ירא אלקים היה מרבים
    צדיק וחכם הולך תמים
    חסיד היה בכל מעשיו
    קדוש וטהור בכל מחשבותיו
    במקל נועם הרעה עדתו
    נעימים היו לקחו ותורתו
    איש חכמתו ותורתו אומנתו
    לא הניח באדם בחכמתו
    יבכו קהל ישראל עליו
    הוי רבינו צדיק ועניו
    ונקטף בלא עת באביב ימים
    נולד ט’ סיון ת”ר לפ”ק
    נפטר ביום י”ג לחדש אב תרמ”ז
