(Old) FAIRMONT MEMORIAL CEMETERY
Fairmont, Robeson County, NC

The discovery of a 1962 survey of Fairmont Memorial Cemetery by Nash A. Odem led Linda Brown to have a look at this old cemetery in search of her ancestors' tombstones. The cemetery is not in good shape (2003). Linda wrote: "many of the tombstones are hidden in the dirt. They have broken off their base and after many years............... leaves, poison ivy and dirt have covered them (about 4 to 6 inches under). If it had not been for this list, my daughter and I would never have known where to dig. " We are so very grateful to Mr. Odem for preserving this data.
--Victoria Proctor, Sept 2003

Survey submitted by: Linda Christenburg Moody Brown Sept. 9, 2003 a descendant of Jiles Bass.

Note: Today some of the Tombstones are under about six inches of dirt. If you canít locate your ancestorís tombstone; this list will aid you in knowing where to dig. I know it helped my daughter Missy and I find our ancestor.

(This was a formerly old Ashpole Baptist Church (Fairmont First) Cemetery. It is located on Main St. in Fairmont beside the present building of the Fairmont First Baptist Church. Copied by Nash A. Odem in 1962. Burials are not allowed in the cemetery now unless immediately associated with someone else by close kinship.)
