Huntington in Suffolk County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Huntington’s First Burial-Place
was opened about 1700.
Within its limits, in 1782,

Here rest the early town’s patriot dead,
soldier and civilian,
author of the First History of Long Island.
Remove not the old landmark.
Proverbs XXIII 10.
