CEMETERY RECORDS

Halsey Burials in Southampton Cemetery, Southampton, NY

submitted by
Dick Halsey

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Copied Saturday, 3 May 1913 by Mr. William A. Eardeley,
P.O. Box 91, Brooklyn, NY  (from LDS film #17924)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE from Mr. Halsey:
This cemetery is PROBABLY the burial place of Thomas Halsey
but there isn't any tombstone for him or any of his family.
People didn't start using tombstones until into the 1700s.
Before that they pounded a couple of posts into the ground
and a board across that with the person's name on it.
They eventually rotted from being in the ground and fell over.
Very few survive.
