Estherville Cemetery

This cemetery is all that remains of the Village of Estherville, which sprang up at the site of the first bridge to span the Otter Creek. There is a sign to identify this cemetery, which is located on Plank Road at Glen Erie Line. It contains the grave of Thomas Edison who was the son of John Edison and that of Thomas’s wife Margaret. This site also contains the stone of Samuel Edison who died at the age of 30 in 1817, but it is possible that this stone was originally located in the “Old John Edison Cemetery” as was the stone belonging to Caleb Haines. Two new stones have been added to commemorate Elsie Edison, who died in 1885, and Susanna and Enos Edison, who were wife and husband as well as first cousins.
