South Fork Cemeteries offers a historical tour of the southern stretch of the East End, from Southampton to Montauk. This leisurely stroll reveals not only ancient burial grounds filled with beautifully engraved slate and sandstone markers but also onshore whaling, famous shipwrecks, and fascinating people. The stones introduce the forefathers and their followers who lie in quiet resting places; the author fills in the biographical detail of the common and the famous, including whalers such as Capt. Mercator Cooper, who visited Japan before Commodore Perry did; writers such as P. G. Wodehouse, who created the unforgettable Jeeves; and artists such as Jackson Pollock, whose medium was house paint.

Über den Autor (2006)

Clement M. Healy, a meticulous researcher and compelling narrator, uses his collection of original photographs supplemented by archival images, paintings, and sketches to explore the history of 8 villages and 23 hamlets. His true appreciation for his subject is as obvious in South Fork Cemeteries as it is in his companion book, North Fork Cemeteries.
