|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In the late 1960's the town of Fairfield was flooded by the construction of what became Brookville Lake. In order to build the lake, it was necessary to relocate the cemeteries from Fairfield to "New Fairfield". The new location became a combined cemetery. The two main cemeteries at Fairfield were Brier Cemetery which was on the south side of town and Sims Cemetery which was north of town. The original cemeteries were in Union County but they are now in Franklin County. When the cemeteries were moved, the remains were laid out in the same order that they were originally in the original cemeteries.
Besides the being referred by the names of the relocated cemeteries, the cemetery is also known as:
