From Wantagh Cem website: "The only authenticated burial of a Revolutionary War soldier in the cemetery is that of Thomas JACKSON, who served in the 4th Line and the Second New York Regiment. Just before the Battle of Long Island, he received bounty money for his men to guard the stock of Queens County so that the British, who were about to invade & occupy Long Island, would not capture & slaughter the stock. He was also engaged in the capture of Fort St. George on November 30, 1780. Jackson was born in 1754 & died in 1842. He owned the property where the Wantagh Public Library now stands & lived on the east side of the Jerusalem River."

From wikipedia: "Wantagh was originally known as Jerusalem, although some early accounts do refer to the area as "Wantagh." The creek running north/south through Wantagh, and which has been covered up in many places but is still visible between Wantagh Parkway and the housing developments west of Wantagh Avenue, was originally the Jerusalem River."
