This is the response I received from Marion Smith regarding the damage to the Lent/Riker/Smith house. 

Dear Peggie:

How thoughtful your gesture is. No – the property is not insured and the clean-up will be a year long process. The cemetery took quite a beating, but no additional stones were demolished. Donations from the Riker descendants are welcome towards the restoration and upkeep and should be made out to Marion Smith.
Thank you,
Marion

Any Ryker/Riker descendants out there that would like to make a donation for the clean-up and restoration for the Lent/Riker/Smith house grounds? Any donations should be made out to Marion Smith. The address is:
Administrative Offices
Lent-Riker-Smith Homestead
35-20 Broadway, 4th Floor
Astoria, NY 11106
You can see this house on line and see all of the beautiful restoration work Marion and her husband did.
