Winegar Hill Cemetery is located 1 mile East of South Butler on the south side of the Butler-Conquest Road. It is a part of the farm land now owned by Steve and Laura Plucinik. The cemetery stones were originally read in the early 1940's. Sometime after that vandals broke almost all of the gravestones. During the following years, the underbrush took over and most of the stones were covered by debris and soil when Robert K. Mead entered the cemetery in the Spring of this year (2000), looking for the graves of his Great Great Great Grandfather Seth Craw and wife Rhoda.

After the removal of over 60 trailer loads of brush, grapevines, and small trees, Mr. Mead eventually located and unearthed the stones he was looking for. After he had repaired the broken pieces, the tombstones were erected in their original location. Seth Craw was a Revolutionary soldier, and the local D.A.R. Chapter will place a permanent marker on the grave. Bob Mead would like to hear from anyone who has relatives buried in this cemetery. His address is 3514 Route 414, Clyde, NY 14433.

He is hoping to unearth other stones that are still buried. He has determined that there are approximately 20 fieldstones with no markings that likely indicate more people are buried here.

Corrections to the above listing as provided by Mr. Mead are:
Philena WENDOVER - age 7 (not 1)
Uldrick WINEGAR - (not Old Rick)
Lewis H. MERRIMAN 9 February 1839, age 1
