#S12.01 Smith Mott
.. as far as can be determined, there are only two graves in this small family burying ground — Smith Mott and his wife Sarah. The cemetery has not been maintained for years, and while the land is apparently owned by the Town of Brookhaven, it is threatened by development.

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.
