Buckingham Family Cemetery


The cemetery is located on the south side of Main St. approximately 100 yards east of the General Store and behind a high fence. The area is wooded and the stones are hard to spot.

The area is now part of the Suffolk County Police dog training area. The stones were copied on 5 Aug. 1962 by ELBERT N. CARTER.
