Cemetery notes and/or description:
aka, Quaker Cemetery

Harris, Edward D. "Ancient Burial-Grounds of Long Island, N.Y." NEHGR, vol.54 (Jan 1900), pp59-61.


At the northern part of the Island, and near the old Manor House of the SYLVESTERs, is a small family burial ground, containing in 1899, the table tomb recently erected, and a few ancient brown-stone stones. This is probably the oldest burial place on the Island. The graves stones of the members of the Sylvester family were removed to the church yard in the middle of the Island many years ago. [Transcribed by Jane Devlin]

Janet Ireland Delorey, writes: This mounment was unveiled 17 Jul 1884. No headstones mark the grave of any person who was buried on Shelter Island between the years 1652-1729.

Memorial erected by Prof. Eben Norton Horsford, of Harvard, to his ancestor, Nathaniel Sylvester.

Sylvester Manor, 116 N. Ferry Rd. (Rt. 114), Shelter Island NY, 11964.
