Biographical / Historical

The collection was created by local Boy Scout Stephen Quick as his Eagle Scout service project. From November 2018 to February 2019, Quick and a team of volunteers combed the cemetery to photograph all surviving, visible gravestones. The earliest gravestone photographed as part of this project is for Elizabeth Fogleson, who died in 1853.

Old Greencastle Cemetery is located on the east side of South Broadway Street, between Miami Chapel Road and Noble Avenue, in Dayton. It is most likely the oldest surviving cemetery in Dayton. Burials at the site began about 1849, when Simon McClure donated three acres of land to Henry Shoup to build a church and burial ground.
