Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 4, 1754
Brookhaven
Suffolk County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 7, 1812, USA

Rev. Paul Cuffee's grave sits all alone in Hampton Bays between the Long Island Railroad tracks and Route 27 highway. It has a stone marker which is weather beaten and broken in two.
Cuffee's grave has a small white fence around it erected by his descendants on "Good Ground" which was once all Indian land.
Cuffee, a Shinnecock Indian, was a celebrated minister, like his grandfather Peter John, who preached to Indians of Long Island. Cuffee during his youth was an indentured servant to a Wading River farmer who became an enthusiastic convert in his early 20s.
Cuffee preached among Indian communities to include a small reservation called Poospatuck (present day Mastic Beach); Canoe Place Hampton Bays, and in the end, Montauk. This vigorous preacher's services were attended by large crowds.
His broken solitary grave marker reads:
In testifying the Gospel
of the Grace of God
He finished his course
with Joy on
7th of March 1812
Aged 55 years and
Three Days
