Commack

Commack
Beginnings: Indians called the area Winnecomac - "pleasant land.'' Because the community was split between Huntington and Smithtown and because of conflicting deeds resulting from purchases from different Indian sachems, there were many boundary disputes. They were not resolved until 1675 when Smithtown founder Richard (Bull) Smith was successful in claims made in Dutch and English courts. The resulting dividing line between the two towns also divided the properties of prominent early families with names such as Burr, Wicks, Harned and Whitman, the ancestors of the poet.
