This old cemetery is located in the woods about one mile northwest of Rosston. There are several graves here, but only one monument. Some of the graves are marked by sand rocks. It is located in the SE1/4 SE1/4 of Section 18, Township 13 South, Range 21 West.
Driving directions: From Rosston, go west on Hwy. 278 (formerly Hwy. 4) toward Hope for 1.3 miles. Turn right on County Rd. 287 (known as Scenic Drive) and go about 8/10ths of a mile to the point where the road crosses the section line between Sections 18 and 19. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile northeast through the woods at a bearing of North 80 degrees East. It is only about 50 feet from the east line of Section 18. I was told in 2012 that a four-wheeler trail leads to the cemetery. The cemetery now has a chain link fence around it with a sign calling it the Fairchild Family Cemetery.
