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.
