Thomas Fairview Cemetery
Phelps County, Missouri

This cemetery is a beautiful cemetery at the end of County Road 4005. Is well maintained and a very nice quiet spot. The cemetery is located: From Rolla, MO take Highway 72 to Highway F, turn left on F and go to County Road 4005. Follow this road to the end and the cemetery is in plain sight. I walked the entire cemetery on September 21, 2003. There were several stones marked "Known only to God" or "We Don’t Know – God Does".

Large Stone "Snelson Memorial, Pine Hill Cemetery - Fairview Cemetery, 1856 to 1956 + stands near the rear of the cemetery. Another very large stone in center of cemetery giving a complete rundown of several Snelsons accomplishments and endowments through out the years.

This cemetery is different than most I have catalogued. There were several with just the last name, or just first and last name and no dates. Several with a Mrs. In front of the last name instead of the persons given name.
