Tombstone Tuesday: Pearl Fair

Pearl Fair
Aug 18, 1896
July 31, 1908

Pearl Fair was the daughter of Charles W. and Adelia Fair.  She appears on the 1900 census with her parents and siblings.  The Fair family cemetery, long abandoned, can be found on either side of Rustic Woods Court.  The cemetery was bisected by the road when the subdivision was built.  There are numerous field stones scattered throughout the woods indicating many burials, but Pearl Fair's marker is the only inscribed stone clearly visible from the road.  (It is heartening to note that the cemetery is being cared for by one of the property owners in the subdivision.)
