Lost Dentures Story

Last week the Three Village Community Trust had their annual dinner celebration featuring guest speaker Beverly Tyler, the very knowledgeable Three Village historian.  He began his speech with a story about his great-grandfather, an early settler in Brookhaven.  One evening this ancestor couldn’t find his dentures.  He looked and looked, but they were nowhere to be found.  Then he realized an amazing thing – he had swallowed the dentures whole! (Is this possible? I don’t think so!)  Anyway, so the story goes, and from that time on, he chewed his food twice.  Funny – but what does this tale have to do with the story of Patriot’s Rock and the early Setauket settlers? I have no idea!
