Comment: From "Early Photographs of the Hamlet of Brookhaven collected by George Perley Morse 1945-1959."

His caption reads: "This house was the home of Sam Breckenridge (Sam Bumstead's grandfather) who came from Brooklyn, N. Y. and first lived down Mott's Lane on the old Mott farm. The house stood on north side of South Country Road about opposite the old Seaman farm. It is shown on map of 1873 as west of D. M. Clark. Note that it was built somewhat like a 'city' house.

"The top part of this house is now located on Fireplace Neck Road, next to the Hulse Cemetery, and is now the home of Miss Frances Hand."
