On Interstate 79 traveling south to Fairmont, take the Downtown exit (exit 137). Bear right off the ramp. Go to left hand lane. Take a left. Go straight on East Park Ave. At the fourth light, turn right across the bridge. At the second light turn right. Staying in the right hand lane, go past large building on your left. At the top of the hill, take an immediate right unto Maple Ave. On Maple Ave. you will pass Woodlawn Cemetery on your left. Follow Maple Ave. to Baltimore St. Fairmont City Cemetery is on the left adjacent to Windmill Park.

This cemetery was used through the 1930s, and had become a paupers' burial ground. The Fairmont City Cemetery Restoration Project was begun in 2000, and has reclaimed about one-quarter of the two acre site from neglect and overgrowth. Work is continuing, engaging students from West Virginia University and Fairmont State College in Service Learning.

An historic reclamation is ongoing as well. Who is interred here? What was their occupation? What is known of their life and death? What did they accomplish while alive? What is known of their family? Is their family still living in Fairmont? Its earliest grave is thought to be that of John Manley, interred 1818.

This transcription is a complete work up to 2002 which was done by physical inventory, with references from previous transcriptions done by the DAR in 1934 and the WPA in 1939.

It contains all known stones at this time, some stones have not been recovered, not all stones have been listed in previous transcriptions, i.e. were discovered during physical reclamation.

cemetery records

A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

Clear Digital Media, Inc.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
