1. Lakeside Cemetery Marker
Inscription.  Laid out in 1814, Lakeside Cemetery became the first public burying ground in Dover Township, an area that now includes Bay Village, Westlake, and the northern portion of North Olmsted. Reuben Osborn 1778-1860) arrived in Dover on October 10, 1810, but returned to New York. He settled on this land with his wife Sarah Johnson Osborn (1779-1856) and family in 1811, later purchasing most of the plot where the cemetery would be established from Philo Taylor. Sarah’s sister, Rebecca Porter, and her infant son were the first to be buried here; they were killed when their boat capsized at the mouth of the Rocky River in 1814. Including land purchased in 1877 the cemetery currently spans half an acre. Although not recorded until 1879, there are over 270 known burials. Among those interred here are veterans from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War the Spanish-American War and World War I.
