Fairview  Cemetery

Van Buren Township
Shelby  County  Indiana

Note from Kayla Hassett:
       I visited the genealogy department of the Shelbyville-Shelby County Public Library last week to research  James Hamilton  (b.1775 South Carolina d.1855 Shelby County, Indiana).  I was very pleased with the resources available.  I also visited two cemeteries.  The library staff provided very good directions to Fairview Cemetery in Van Buren Township and to Ruggles Cemetery in Moral Township.
       A lot of the stones in Fairview Cemetery were knocked over, due to a number of trees being cut down.  I guess there's no graceful way to cut trees out of a cemetery, and I hope the stones are put back upright very soon.  However, it was very discouraging to see.
