Philo Webster and Webster Graveyard
An 1872 map shows the Webster graveyard north of the ravine and to the east of the turnpike (High Street). In addition to Philo Webster, among those buried here were Dan Case, Rodney Cooke, John Buck, and Jordan Ingram. In 1904 the “Old Northwest” Genealogical Quarterly reported 39 headstones in this cemetery - also known as Cooke Cemetery.
In 1910 Clinton Township Trustee C.E. Webster made arrangements
for the graveyard to be relocated. Philo Webster, his wife, Sarah,
their son John, his wife Lydia and John and Lydia’s son Oliver were
moved to Green Lawn Cemetery. Peter Webster, his wife Lydia
Sperry, Rodney Cooke and his wife Laura and 16 others were moved
to Union Cemetery. Elihu Webster, his wife Nancy and their sons
Edward and Marlin were moved to Walnut Grove Cemetery.
