    Mrs. Scudder called this cemetery the "Daniel Nostrand Farm" cemetery and located it in "South Dix Hills" when she did her inventory ca. 1912. The 1990 "Huntington Historic Cemeteries" booklet uses the name "Nostrand-Bigelow Farm" as well as the term "Caledonia Hills" for this cemetery. This historic graveyard, now a Town of Huntington Local Historic Site, is located on Dix Hills Road between Hunter Court and Livingston Place, just south of the Northern State Parkway, in the Dix Hills section o  the Town of Huntington. Data on this cemetery may be found in the "Scudder Collection of Long Island Genealogical Records" available at the Huntington Historical Society or on L. D. S. microfilm.
