Fairview - Fremont Cemetery is another of the examples of forgotten cemeteries. It is located in Waynesville Township Section 15 and very hard to find as it is about one mile down a tiny trenched road between two fields. I do not have a list for this cemetery but took pictures of many of the stones. The family surnames are familiar to that area: FRISBY, SHAFFER, WILLIAMS, PRICE, FORREST, DARROW, BAKER, and MORRIS. I apologize for not getting a wide shot of this one. If you have relatives here I would suggest that you act fast and notify the State of Illinois Controller immediately. If anyone happens on this site that would have a reading for this cemetery or is related to those buried here, please contact me. Here is a list of who I could determine was buried here using the pictures: (Pictures are Below)
