Our grandparents and great grandparents Edwards, Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson
Remains of stones from the Civil War period memorializing our grandfather's brothers who died as children
Baiting Hollow Congregational Church, where the Youngs (our grandmother's family) are buried
These plaques are located on the Young family monument in Baiting Hollow. The plaque on the left shows our grandmother, her brothers and sisters, and their parents. The plaque on the right traces the Young family back to England in the 1600s. The Rev. John Youngs (spelled with an ‘s’ at the end) landed at New Haven Colony with the first settlers, but then moved across Long Island Sound to Southold, which was considered part of New Haven Colony at that time. He spent his life Christianizing the Indians of eastern Long Island.
The Congregational Church in Northville, northeast of Riverhead, where our great aunt Mary Eliza Young worshipped all her life
This house was once the chapel on our great aunt's 80-acre potato farm on Sound Avenue in Riverhead. To the right are what were once the fields, which are now being converted into a housing development of McMansions. A framed-in home can be seen halfway back through the fields.
The developer's sign
... good-bye to the old farm
Here's how the old place looked in November of 1996 ... buildings torn down, but the land still farmed.
