Saint Andrews Cemetery

"In 1853, James H. Weeks and his wife Susan, purchased a tract of land near their home for the purpose of building an Episcopal Church.

Upon completion of the Church, Mr. and Mrs. Weeks named the edifice, St. Andrew's Church, for the day on which a beloved grand-daughter had been interred in 1850. The Rev. Charles H. Gardiner, missionary of St. Paul's in Patchogue, conducted the first service in 1854.

The first Rite of Confirmation was performed on July 5, 1859 by Bishop Potter to J.H. Weeks, W.J. Weeks, and Mary C. Weeks. The infant son of W.J. and Mary C. Weeks was Baptized William at this same time. This infant, William, was also the first burial in the Church, in October 1856.

On September 3, 1857, the Rev. Walter Stirling performed the first marriage ceremony, uniting Charlotte Howell and Frank Ward both deaf, but intelligent and well educated.

Sometime in the year 1861, St. Andrew's was left unsupplied, but the Church was kept open by the appointment of W.J. Weeks as lay reader. He performed this office for ten years, occasionally assisted by the Rev. Robert Holden and Bishop Potter whenever the latter came on Long Island.

A debt of $500 was still due on the building, which was liquidated by Charles Jeffrey Smith of Mastic in 1872, as a tribute to the memory of his wife, Letitia Suydam Smith.

The paying of this debt paved the way for the conveying of the Church to the Diocese of Long Island assisted by five clergy of the Island, formally consecreted St. Andrew's Church.

In 1938, the great hurricane toppled many trees in the Church yard. The hand of God must have stayed these trees, because although several fell and damaged the roof, no damage was done to the stained glass windows or to the Cross and candlesticks on the altar.

Since 1874 no formal history of St. Andrew's has been written. However, during the ensuing years the records of Baptisms, Marriages, and Confirmations have been faithfully kept.

Throughout the 100 years of its being, the doors of St. Andrew's have never been closed to the public. Seminary students, lay readers, and the Brothers of St. Joseph have held services when no ordained Priest was available. When a Priest could be obtained, Holy Communion was administered, Baptisms were performed, (many at one time), and Marriages solemnized.' The above article was written by Thomas R. Bayles and was copied from the "Long Island Advance" dated 9 Dec. 1971. The stones in the cemetary were copied in September and October 1971 by Elbert N. Carter. The Church and the cemetery are located on the South side of Main St. several hundred yards East of the Post Office.
