1810 - 1883Affectionately called by some, "The Father of Ferncliff Cemetery", John Ludlow is a member of an early pioneer family in Clark County, eventually becoming a well-known pharmacist. In 1851, he is elected as a director of the Springfield Bank, later becoming its president. Ludlow leads the newly created Springfield Cemetery Association for the first twenty years of its existence serving as president during its early developmental years. Oftentimes, during his extended terms in office, he asks to be replaced only to be re-elected again because of his expert leadership as a man of integrity. His love for local history results in his writing of the "Ludlow Papers of 1871" considered to be a classic, well-written history of early Springfield, Ohio.
