Old Neighborhood Cemetery

The Old Neighborhood Cemetery is located on the west side of McGintis Road on the private property of the Eleanor McGuinnis Farm. This farm was previously owned by Arthur Fenton. It is in the Town of Winfield, Herkimer County, NY. It is very close to the county boundary. The east side of the road is in the Town or Richfield, Otsego County. The grave listing is from the D.A.R. Vol 12, contributed by the Oneida County N.S.D.A.R. Utica NY, January 1925.

Arthur and Janet Wright of Delanson, NY found this cemetery overgrown in June 2000. They with the help of Robert and Harold Wright and John McGuinnis have cleaned and cleared it.
