|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
I have photographed all exisitng tombstones at this cemetery. There are large empty areas between some tombstones. For example, near where many of the Alexanders are buried, there are large open gaps between existng tombstones. This could be where persons are buried and the tombstones no longer exist or were never provided.
I will be, in the future, going back to try to find some that are missing and will also be posting some death certificates to prove their burial location.
As a brief overview of the name:
The Fairview-Campbell Cemetery is, in reality, the Campbell Cemetery. The Fairview Baptist Church is located just to its south and many funerals have been held there. To avoid confusion with the Campbell Cemetery in nearby Adair County, the local funeral homes would refer to this cemetery as "The Fairview" and many locals also called it such. On many death certificates, you will see it written as "The Fairview."
There may also be a Fairview Cemetery in nearby Grundy County, but that will have to be confirmed.
