.. on 14 April 2011, members of the Fire Place History Club visited the cemetery and did some archeological work. They included Richie Davin, owner of Davin's Funeral Home along Montauk Hwy in Mastic. The burying ground is behind his sister, Sharon's, house.

CaptionRichie Davin, owner of Davin's Funeral Home along Montauk Hwy in Mastic (shown in Mac Thomas' Mastic Film) has been asking me to go with him to the Woodruff cemetery for nearly a year, which is behind his sister, Sharon's, house. Sharon is on left of 1 st pix, her house is about 100 yards directly behind her to the north. Sharon was a classmate of mine at William Floyd. We poked around and came up with one complete stone and big pieces of two other stones. --Marty

#B017 Woodruff Private Cemetery, Bellport, Suffolk County, Brookhaven Town, NY, USA

Notes:

The Woodruff private graveyard is north of the South Country Road and a little distance north and back of the barn on the former Hoyt estate, just outside and east of the Bellport Village line.

It appears that this small family cemetery is not being maintained by the Town of Brookhaven as required by NY State Law.

This cemetery is in poor condition and threatened, and not likely to survive another generation.

This cemetery has Historic Sites Ref. ID Br15.1-S and is #17 on the Town of Brookhaven Historian's Cemetery List.
