Another of the Rural Series of Central Ohio Quakers

Members of the religious Society of Friends were
instrumental in the founding and development of
Springboro.
This plot contains the remains of Springboro founder
Jonathan Wright (1782- 1855), a Quaker leader who donated
part of his land holdings to his Meeting for this cemetery.
Also buried here are other members of the Wright family
including Jonathan's father, Joel, who platted Louisville,
Kentucky, and Columbus and Dayton, Ohio. Other burials include
Revolutionary War veteran John Mullen, and pioneer orchard
magnate, Jesse Wilson; and several African Americans who
had no burial site of their own.
The Friends Meeting House of Springboro once stood
inside the front gate.
After the Springborough Meeting was laid down, the plot
was Maintained by the Miami Monthly Meeting in
Waynesville, until 1996, when the cemetery was deeded to
the City of Springboro.
