Gardiner, missionary of St. Paul's in Patchogue, conducted the first service in 1854. William Weeks son of William Jones Weeks and Mary Croswell Weeks was the first person to be buried in the cemetery in 1856.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
