 #BS12 Mott Family Cemetery, Brookhaven Hamlet, Suffolk County, Brookhaven Town, NY, USA

#BS12 Mott Family Cemetery


The Mott family cemetery is a small 30 ft. x 50 ft. plot in the woods 450 feet east of Mott La., 200 feet south of Bond Lane. It is untended and not easily found. Currently only two gravestones are identifiable, Smith Mott and Sarah Mott.  Unless immediate conservation measures are taken, this burying ground will likely be lost within the next generation through neglect and encroachment.
