The late local historian Thomas R. Bayles wrote a local history column for the Patchogue and Long Island Advance. Our latest project is to put up the hundreds of stories written by Mr. Bayles. These articles come from the 13 notebooks kept by Mr. Bayles. It will take us some time to complete this project and as of right now we have some articles from books 4, 9 & 10 completed. As the rest are typed up they will be added to the page.
