Comment: After Gus Hawkins died in 1914 (Prudence died 1915), the Hawkins farm appears to have been sold (requires confirmation). Gus never married, and therefore there were no direct heirs. It is said that there were various tenants of the house over the next 40-years, mostly as Summer residents. This picture was dated 1950.

Comment: High altitude aerial view of Little Neck, Brookhaven, Long Island, NY

Little Neck is bounded by Yaphank Creek on the east (right), the Carman's River on the south, and Little Neck Run on the west (left).

The road through the middle is Old Barto Road. The Hawkins farm was on the west side of the neck, the Barteau farm was on the east.

At the south end of Yaphank Creek can be seen the lagoon or canal dredged by the Barteau's as a port.
