Jacob Alpert is buried between the Budow and Malbin graves. There is no headstone and the space between them probably couldn't handle a very large one if there were. He died at the start of the depression and it is unlikely that his children did not have enough money to buy a headstone. But I don't know whether they were even close to their father, having not seen him for more than 15 or 25 years. I hope we can fix this someday.
