A list compiled by Emma Jane Null and others in 1977 contained 195 entries arranged by row and grave in this Quaker cemetery. 
Later gravestone readings, list 60 burials. The earliest was for Elizabeth Wright who died in 1805. The last was for Alfred J. Wright who died in 1964.


Friends Cemetery of the Springborough Quaker Meeting
Members of the Religious Society of Friends were instrumental in the founding and development of early Springboro.
This plat contains the remains of Springboro founder Jonathan Wright (1782-1855) a Quaker leader who donated part of his land holding to his meeting for this cemetery.
Also buried here are other members of the Wright family including Jonathan's father, Joel, who platted Louisville, KY, and Columbus and Dayton, Ohio. Other burials include Revolutionary War veteran John Mullen, pioneer orchard magnate Jesse Wilson and several African-Americans, who had no burial site of their own.
The Friends Meeting House of Springborough once stood inside of 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.
