Unless indicated below, this is a transcript of the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey form. Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made. Corrections to factual errors, updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or will be clearly indicated as updated material. Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, much of the information reflects that time period.

Sites with an Inventory Code suffix of “S” are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Nathaniel Hawkins Cemetery

A small family cemetery in the midst of large oak trees, many members of the Hawkins family are buried here. However, it has been the target of much vandalism. It is now contained within the Wertheim Refuge (See SH03).


Members of the David Hawkins family who built the house c. 1801 which is directly south of this site, are buried here. See Br03.
