Fairview Park Cemetery is located on 29th Street and Georgia outside
of Chickasha, Grady, OK. Originally, six acres of this cemetery was
bought as a Roman Catholic burial ground on 17 December 1908 by Reverend
A. M. Urban DeHasque, the pastor of Holy Name (of Jesus) Church in Chickasha.
It's in deplorable condition now with only a few gravestones left.
Some people were moved to Rose Hill Cemetery. Other graves were plowed
over in order to farm!
