Bud Blum has acquired a transcription of an excerpt from the diary of Clarkson Butterworth dated Tuesday, November 7, 1893 in which he describes his visit to the cemetery for the funeral of his uncle Henry T. Butterworth. He then goes on to describe the cemetery and those buried there. [Clarkson was then living in Clinton County]
Rachel and I went to Butterworth’s and attended the funeral of uncle H. T. Butterworth. The remains were interred at the feet of his father’s remains on the hill overlooking his late and long continued residence. Here is a rough diagram of several of the graves there with all their heads toward the west.

-------- 1. uncle John Dyer
-------- 2. cousin William Dyer
-------- 3.}
-------- 4.} Aunt Milly Dyer and her two children, Mary (or Polly)
-------- 5.} and Benjamin
-------- 6. grandfather Benjamin Butterworth
-------- 7. grandmother Rachel Butterworth
-------- 8. my father, Moorman Butterworth
-------- 9. Aunt Nancy Ballard
-------- 10. uncle Henry Thomas Butterworth

In a row west of these are graves of uncle H. T.’s two little sons, Moorman and Henry Thomas, and other children, relatives. The grave of my brother Thomas, whose exact locality is not now known is still a little further west, with some other graves near it and about 8 or 10 rods further west on the point of the hill are other graves also, including a daughter of Uncle Samuel Butterworth. The grave of uncle William’s daughter Leonisa (Leouisa?) is probably near that of my brother Thomas.

After the funeral Rachel rode home with cousin J. M. Dyer, whither I followed on foot. Our tickets to Fosters and return cost $3.20 and we paid 20˘ more to go from Fosters to Butterworth. Seth Ellis had partial charge of ceremonies at the funeral, cousin Rachel Hadley spoke 40 minutes, and Emma Danforth, uncle H. T.’s daughter, read an obituary, embracing with other things, essentially the matter I prepared, or helped uncle prepare and arrange (see 1889,7.23). At the grave Rachel Hadley prayed and Seth Ellis pronounced a benediction.
