The reading of Wessell Hill Cemetery was found in Vol. 253 of the compiled miscellaneous D.A.R. records. The reader of this cemetery was Helen B. Fyvie, Chairman Genealogical Records, Schenectada Chapter NSDAR, Schenectady, N.Y., dated Feb. 4, 1962. Wessell Hill Cemetery is presented as it was typed, which was an attempt to follow order of burial. However, as it was 3 pages long and two columns per page, it's difficult to determine the exact order of burial. Wessell Hill Cemetery is located in the far southwestern corner of the Town of Root, just east of the Town of Canajoharie border.
