Description:

Photos show views of the Wakefield family plot in Lakeside Cemetery on North Avenue. The plot with its red granite tomb is located near the corner of "South Avenue" and "Dielytra Path" at the southeast corner of the cemetery near the lake. The Cyruses buried here are not the one for whom the town is named, but rather the first Cyrus' nephew and his son and grandson. Confusingly, Cyrus II's son and grandson were both known as Cyrus Jr. The better known Cyrus, for whom Wakefield is named, is buried in a separate tomb with his wife Eliza elsewhere in the same cemetery. Also buried here is Jasper Young Wakefield, the fourth child of Cyrus II, who "Died June 11, 1883 aged 4 years 11 mos. & 12 days." Photos taken at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 23, 2007.
