According to a family records written in 1963, George Fairbairn (1795-1890), his wife Margaret (1796-1893), along with their daughter (1850?-1928) are buried in the Oakwood Cemetery, Hamilton, Hancock County, IL.

We have a census showing them living in Montebello (Hamilton Post Office) in 1870.

A GenWeb site for Hancock County lists Oakwood Cemetery in Hancock County, but a listing of those buried there does not include these Fairbairns.

If someone would be so kind to walk this cemetery the next time they are there, or if they would contact the cemetery office to determine if they are actually buried there, or if they would send us the address of the cemetery, we would appreciate it. This is my husband's great great grandparents. Thank you.
