The next marker does not exist anymore.  It was placed at the intersection of the Motor Parkway and Old Country Road June 6, 1959, a few blocks west of Roosevelt Field.  The marker wad dedicated by Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor, John Burns, and 11 members of the Boy Scouts of America Explorer Post 429 who included it as part of their hike of the Motor Parkway in Nassau County.  The hike was taken in connection with the post's ambition to earn the Historic Trails Award, a major scouting award which until that time had never been won in Nassau County.  Unfortunately the marker was taken down during the widening of Old Country Road sometime later.  Where the marker is now is anyone's guess.
