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.  Included in this category are sites for which some documentation may exist but are no longer extant often with little or no modern evidence at the site.

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

According to George Perley Morse -- "Jesse Rose (1738-1821) bought land of Thomas Helme in 1780. His son-in-law Selah Hawkins [1775-1861] purchased or took over the farm and homestead in 1818, Jesse being then 80 years old. Selah Hawkins died in 1861 and his two sons Lewis [1804-1887] and Harmon[Herman, 1813-1903] inherited the farm.

"This house was cut in half and one half was moved about 300 yards to the east, and was built on-to to its original size by Harmon Hawkins. The Lewis Hawkins home stood opposite Miss Ella Hawkins home on Beaver Dam Road and close to the road. It was destroyed by fire [in the early 20th century]. The original barn stood until 1952."
