Fairview Negro Cemetery
Marshall, Saline County, Missouri
Fairview Cemetery is located at the end of East Vest Street in Marshall, north of the Ridge Park Cemetery.
According to the records, R. Jackson deeded, for one dollar, a tract of land to Fairview Cemetery in 1870. It is probably the largest African-American cemetery in Saline County.
