Merchant Cemetery

Fairbank Plot

De Ruyter


The Merchant Cemetery is in a woods set in a field off the road. The stones stand like sentinels when viewed from the road. I looked at them from about a quarter mile away.

There are about the same number of the Fairbank family listed for the Hillcrest Cemetery according to the index. Those pages are missing but a list prepared by Joyce Scott should help in identifying that cemetery.
