"Fairview Cemetery is located in
Bronte, Coke County, Texas.
Highway 84 borders the cemetery to the south and
the two front gates open on South Franklin Street,
which is one block off of Highway 277 and runs parrell
to the highway. Above the main entrance there is a sign
that says Fairview Cemetery 1934, however some of the
tombstones are much older."

"Since there was no map available and only records of who owned the property, we devised a system to keep the transcription
in order by making a map and using a Section, Row, Plot and Grave# System. There are two parts to the cemetery. The Old
Part has two Sections and is located at the East end, fartherest part from the entrances. The New Part has four Sections. They
are numbered I, II, III, IV, South to North across cemetery. Row 1 begins with first row next to the road that divides Old Part
from the New Part in the back.and rows are numbered from East to West. Then Plots are assigned letters A through T going
South to North across cemetery." by Arlene McKinney, 1 August 2001
