    • The Joseph Davis Private Graveyard

      #69 on the Osborne Shaw Cemetery List - located on the farm where Joseph and Elizabeth (Parshall) Davis once lived. This cemetery is located on the west side of the right-of-way to the Chandler Estate (r.o.w. is just west of the Mt. Sinai Congregational Church) approximately 250 ft. north of North Country Road. The east and south sides of cemetery are bounded by an old wire fence. Brookhaven Town records indicate that when it was last visited, 1978, it was severely overgrown.

      The following information is taken from a notebook compiled by Selah H. Tooker in 1940. Names, dates, and comments are his. Some comments are by Charles T. Davis.

      I was told by Wm. A. Davis (1861- ) that Benjamin Davis and Benjamin Jr. were the first ones buried here. They were the son and grandson respectively of Joseph Davis (1645-1691).
