Winegar Cemetery

Winegar Cemetery is a well-maintained graveyard in Byron Township, just south of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The cemetery is down a lovely country lane on land that was once owned by Isaac Winegar, Jr., patriarch of the Winegar family in Byron Township.  There is a very nice sign by the road at the entry to the lane and a wonderful wrought iron archway a short distance down the lane.
