Named after the brook that runs through it, Silverbrook Cemetery is older than the State of Michigan, dating back to 1836. Many prominent Niles residents are buried here including the parents and sister of Montgomery Ward of catalogue fame; the family of Niles native journalist and sports writer, Ring Lardner; and the parents of auto barons John and Horace Dodge. Civil War figures interred include Colonel Francis Quinn of the Michigan 12th, and General Henry A. Morrow of the 24th Michigan Infantry.
