Excerpt from The Annals of Newtown in Queens County, New York, page 405: "Samuel Hallett, son of William, was, in his time, a person of consideration. He d. Dec. 27, 1724, a [sic: at] 73, having, a few days before his death, conveyed his entire estate to his only son, Samuel. He was interred on his own premises (the burying-ground beside the Methodist church, Astoria) where his grave, and those of many of his descendants, may still be seen. The family of his brother William set apart a burial-place upon their own land, which still remains on the Stevens property; and here, as tradition says, the family murdered in 1708, lie buried in one grave. Samuel Hallett had daughters Hannah, m. John Washburn; Elizabeth, m. Col. John Jackson; Grace, m. Lewis Hewlett; Mercy, m. Cornell, and Martha, who m. Jas. Hazard, Esq."
