3-Description

The Barteau Cemetery is an approximately 65 ft. east-west x 160 ft. north-south plot located about 240 ft. north of Montauk Highway (South Country Rd.) in Brookhaven Hamlet, roughly midway between Horseblock Rd. and Yaphank Ave, with a right of way exiting onto Montauk Highway.

The Barteau family was one of the earliest residents of Fire Place (now Brookhaven). Francis Barteau moved from Huntington to Fire Place in 1741 and established a farm. The place remained in the family until 1871 when they sold it and are said to haved moved West, although some Barteau's remained in the community until well into the late 20th century. Near to the cemetery is a home thought to be one of the original Barteau farm houses (Historic Structure ID Br04.1-S).
