Unless indicated below, this is a transcript of the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey form.  Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made.  Corrections to factual errors, updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or will be clearly indicated as updated material.  Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970's and early 1980's, much of the information reflects that time period. 

Sites with an Inventory Code suffix of "S" are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Address:   e/s Mott Lane, s/o Bond Lane  
A small family cemetery located in the woods about 400 feet east of Mott Lane, roughly 2800 feet south of Beaver Dam Rd..  
One of many small family burying grounds in Brookhaven Hamlet, typical of the burial customs of the early 19th century. The site measures approximately 30 ft. x 50 ft.. Based on a 1939 Town of Brookhaven Cemetery Survey, there are only two graves on the site -- Smith Mott and his wife Sarah. Sarah's monument has been badly vandelized. It is apparent that there has been no maintenance of the site in years.
