This blog will provide information about cemeteries and graveyards in both Monroe and Greenbrier Counties in West Virginia.

Our Mission

Our mission is to log locale's and photographs of as many graves and cemeteries as possible within Monroe and Greenbrier Counties.

We are a one-woman team, so progress may be slow, and will take place as weather permits. If you know of a cemetery or graveyard that you would like to see showcased here, please let us know.

Fairview Christian Church Cemetery

Fairview Christian Church Cemetery is located between Gap Mills and Union, in Monroe County.  Off of Route 3 approximately 0.75 miles, on Central Church Road, this cemetery is located on the left hand side of the road, and sits almost on the road in places.

We only got about half of this cemetery cataloged yesterday, as a funeral was to begin shortly. We will go back very soon and get the remainder of the sites.

We were able to catalog the upper most area entirely [at the road] and over half of the central area. We will get back shortly to finish the cataloging.

To set these in a more manageable manner, I will be posting 4 or so graves a day.
