Cemetery notes and/or description:
Emanuel Episcopal Church, the "Little Chapel", on Great River Road, became a reality on Nov. 16, 1862 when Mr. and Mrs. William Nicoll deeded one-half acre of land. The bell in the chapel tower was inscribed with the words, "Emmanuel Church, Islip, L.I., Thou shall open my lips, O'Lord and my mouth shall show thee praise".

Located at the site of the original chapel's entrance is a stained glass window from France donated by the Plum family. Tiffany glass windows known as the Sarah Nicoll's "Crown of Heaven" and the William Nicoll's "Jewel Cross" were donated as a memorial by the Nicoll family. Other Tiffany windows were also presented to Emmanuel from 1903 to 1915.

Emmanuel Church Cemetery, founded in 1878, is located directly behind the church. Some of those interred are William Nicholl VII and the financier H. B. Hollins.
