Fairview Cemetery

Monroe Township

According to historian Thomas Helm: In about 1833, the cemetery was established on land donated for that purpose by one of the Beeson brothers, in the NE part of Monroe Township, near the Christian Friends meeting house. The cemetery has been called Christian Friends and Brick. It seems likely that the cemetery was first called Christian Friends, although you will sometimes see the names "Christian" and "Friends" used separately. At one time, the cemetery was surrounded by a brick wall of some nature, and so was called Brick.

LOCATION: SEC 14 200E & 610S
There is also a Fairview Cemetery in Delaware Township, Delaware County.

The gravestone on the left is that of Robert Brown, after it had been repaired. The gravestone on the right is that of Lydia E "Emma" Brown Fuson, daughter of Robert Brown. This picture was taken from the back of the cemetery where it is separated from a field by a fence. The photographer is facing toward the front of the cemetery.
