A letter found in the Ely Collection written by Justin Ely of West Springfield, MA., to his brother Heman Ely in Elyria dated July 25, 1820;

"I rejoice to hear of the increase of your Irish inhabitants and trust they will not all be so uneasy as Mr. Porter."

From the Chronicle Telegram, June 12, 1923

FIRST BURIAL HERE JUST 100 YEARS AGO
"Fred Dachtler, veteran retired blacksmith, calls attention to the fact that the first burial in Elyria Cemetery was made 100 years ago. Fred states that William Turner, a pioneer and his next door neighbor at that time, told him about the burial, saying that he attended it.
The man who died was Nathan Porter, death taking place on what is now called the Melin farm, north of town in 1822. The body was buried on the farm, and in the spring of 1923(?) it was taken up and placed in the old Elyria cemetery, which had been designated as the burial spot for the village. A stone marks his resting place, giving his name and the date of his death."
