Hamlet of Brookhaven resource

As I was preparing to discuss Samuel Dayton “at South” it occurred to me—John Deitz has already done a magnificent job of setting up background for this story on his website Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlets & their People. His research and reporting methods should be a model for others who are thinking about producing a useful, scholarly website. John provides a wealth of information, many links and tools including News, Places index, People database, Cemeteries, Photos, Maps, Studies, Presentations, Community links as well as others. There is also an associated blog entitled Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlets with archives going back to 2008!

If you’re interested in the hamlet of Brookhaven (inside the Town of Brookhaven) and its history, you should take a look at Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlets & their People. It’s difficult to choose a favorite section of his site, but be prepared to spend some time in the many history sections. John’s maps even include Dayton’s Neck!

The next post will be about Samuel.
