#BS17.Rider03: Hannah, wife of Barnabas Rider
..Died: 25 April 1856 ae 62 yrs - 8 mo.
While a record of this headstone was found in the documentation for the c. 1939 Town of Brookhaven Historians cemetery inventory, it could not be found in 2007. In September 2013, members of the Fire Place History Club conducted a clean-up of the site. Knowing that Hannah's gravestone was inventoried in the late 1930's, they probed the site and found it buried beneath several inches of soil, likely near where it fell. With further probing, they found and excavated the base.

In 2007, it was found located on the north side of the Puleston-Clement farm about fifty feet east of Meadow Lane. It is not being maintained and is in poor condition. This small family burial site is subject to complete loss by the next generation. The 1939 Town of Brookhaven survey recorded that there were three gravestones on the site. However, when visited on 28 Feb 2007 by John Deitz and Marty Van Lith, only two could be found. An archaeological study might find a third.
It is #S17 on the Town of Brookhaven Historians Cemetery List, has Suffolk County Tax Map reference 200-976.40-01-12, and has Historic Site ID Br30.1-S. It is approximately located at Latitude N40° 46.296' Longitude W72° 54.048'. An inspection on 24 Sep 2007 indicated two new survey monuments, probably at the southeast and southwest corners of the site.
