Location: The exact location is unknown today.

History: This plantation was a Crown grant to Col. William McIntosh, The Elder for his service under General Oglethorpe against the Spanish. His son Col. John McIntosh, lived there after the Revolutionary War. By the 1920s the house was on the edge of the bank and the cemetery had washed into the river, according to Miss Bessie Lewis, County historian.

A resident moved a remaining headstone to nearby Mallow Cemetery. There is a Historical Marker at Mallow Plantation Cemetery which states that Col. John McIntosh was buried at Fairhope Plantation.
