From Wikipedia:

On March 6, 1855, the city of Oshkosh purchased a land parcel from Maria Grignon for creation of a cemetery. The parcel was located on the east bank of the Fox River and was named Riverside Cemetery. It was built as a replacement for the Locust Grove Cemetery, which was the first burial ground in Oshkosh and built in 1848. Between 1855 and 1869, the remains of those buried in Locust Grove were moved to Riverside Cemetery.

In 1855, the Riverside Catholic cemetery was laid out north of the cemetery and expanded further in 1875. In 1868, a parcel was purchased east of the Riverside Cemetery by Masons. In 1882, the city purchased 38 acres in the north edge of the Catholic plots. In 1887, the city sold off 10 acres to the Catholic Church. In 1914, an additional 61 acres were purchased from H. C. Rogers, expanding the cemetery to 98.39 acres, the current size today.
