Butler then burned the fortified Windemuth house to fool the rebels into believing Butler's force had left. The Rangers ambushed 300 rebels; then the Wintermute family left with the Rangers and moved to Upper Canada. Philip died within a year and his wife was provisioned with Capt. George Dame's Company of Butler's Rangers in the ration list of Nov. 30, 1783. Mary Windemuth ran a tavern on the River Road below the Fort Erie ferry.
