History of Kezer Lot
Kezer Lot. Section 8 Lot 25. Timothy Kezeer purchased a lot, on Mulberry avenue, in City Cemetery in 1845. Mr. Kezer died and was buried on this lot the same year. Four years later, his widow Ellen married William H. Wetmore in Nashville. The first Wetmore burial took place on the Kezer lot in 1852 for Jennie Wetmore, four year old daughter of William’s brother Moses W. & his wife Jane E. Wetmore. Five members of the Wetmore family were buried on the Kezer Lot between 1852-1891. During the first survey of Sections, Lots and Tombstones, by Engineer F.R.R. Smith, no Wetmore tombstones were located on the Kezer Lot and no tombstone for Moses W. Wetmore was located on Magnolia avenue.
   In 1909, the Odd Fellows of Tennessee proposed that a monument be placed at City Cemetery for Thomas Kezeer, the first Grand Master of the IOOF in Tennessee. The monument was unveiled in October 1910.
