Unless indicated below, this is a transcript of the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey form.   Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970's and early 1980's, much of the information reflects that time period. 

Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made.  Corrections to factual errors in the original surveys, and updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or are clearly indicated as updated material from the context of the comments. 

Sites which have a suffix of "S" are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Other Notable Features of Building and Site
18-Notable Features: This house belonged to H. Raynor in 1873 [likely Henry Raynor]. Probably Raynor in 1858. [There was no H. Raynor in either the 1850 or 1860 censuses, making it likely he came to the community after 1860. Henry Raynor appears in the 1880 census, adjacent to Edward Raynor. In 1858, adjacent to the south of this house, at the corner of South Country and Beaverdam Roads, was the Edward S. Raynor store. Edward and family was found in the 1850, 1860 and 1880 censuses. Henry and Edward Raynor are likely related, probably brothers.]      
19-Initial Const Date:   before 1873
