Search Fairmount Cemetery:

This cemetery is located off Route 361 (Fairmount Road) as you pass through Lower Fairmount, on your left. There is a small auto welding business on the road, and the road to the cemetery (a driveway) is immediately after this. This land had belonged to Harry B. Miles Sr. (1876-1968) during his days as an undertaker. His daughter Betty mentions that he had obtained the land from a William Adams, a member of the Knights of Pythias, in exchange for a pony and cart! The land was already being used as a cemetery by this Lodge. When Mr. Miles took possession of the land, he divided it up into small lots, large enough for the burial 8 persons in each lot (two rows of 4). This cemetery was properly known as "Knights of Pythias Cemetery", though it has become more popularly known as "Fairmount Cemetery", and the sign at the entrance bears this name.
