"Lower White Hills Cemetery is located in Huntington at the north end, nearly, of the Lower White Hills. It was called, for many years, the Patterson Burying-Place because a family of that name resided close by it. The land was given by Agur Judson, and his remains were the first buried in it. He and Daniel Shelton, a near neighbor, agreed to, and did each 'stick a stake on land that should be given for a burying place by the one who should die first.' Mr. Judson died July 16, 1791, Mr. Shelton October 15, 1816, and upon the death of the former, the ground was prepared and his remains were the first deposited in it.

Mr. Macena Hubbell, still living, has been sexton of this yeard about forty yers, and hence has served at about half the interments which have been made in the place. There are in it 161 stones with inscriptions on them, and a number of other graves, and some without head stones."
