 Long Island Photographs from abt 1900

At mid-point in our 52 weeks of ancestors, here are some photos I colorized. 
Don't you love the dog in the photo?
Wm Ephraim Hauxhurst at home Westbury NY abt 1900 - Bertha's father

Wm E Hauxhurst-Marianna Hicks home Westbury, NY
Bertha C. Hauxhurst (Tyson) young adult
Isaac Hicks/Mary Fry Willis house, Westbury, NY Bertha's grparnts
The girl is my great grandmother, Bertha C Hawxhurst∗ who married Chester Tyson of Adams County, PA). 
Also shown above is Bertha's father, William Ephraim Hawxhurst, surveyor, farmer and land-owner in Nassau County, NY. 
William came to hold a lot of land in an increasingly popular area to buy. He sold a good deal off to those who would build summer homes on Long Island's north shore in the early 1900s. 
Bertha's maternal grandparents, Isaac Hicks and his wife Mary Fry Willis, also not far from the Hawxhurst home.
🞶Hawxhurst is also been spelled Hauxhurst. In some very old records, it has appeared in its phonetic form: "Hawkshurst"
