1834 - 1906John Dick, born in Aryshire, Scotland and educated at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, comes to the United States with his family in 1854 spending several years working on Long Island laying out the park system. He later moves to Cincinnati in order to study and work under the guidance of Adolph Strauch, a noted superintendent and landscape gardener on the well-known Spring Grove Cemetery. In the fall of 1863, Mr. Dick receives the recommendation of Strauch for the superintendent's position at the newly established Ferncliff Cemetery in Springfield, Ohio. Under his leadership of 43 years, Ferncliff Cemetery becomes known as one of the most beautiful rural cemeteries in the Midwest.
