**This cemetery was moved from its original location in
Marion County during the building of the airport (about 1998). It was
near the new tower. Many graves were marked by, illegible early limestone
tablets, fieldstones or nothing at all. Fortunately, an accurate plot
map existed in Quaker records. This map was used to identify remains
so they could be marked after moving. Many of the names were incomplete including
some strangers that died along the major road. The original stones were not
used and instead were replaced with modern flat markers with names on them.
This cemetery is in the southeast corner of the intersection of 700S (Camby
Road) and 1050E. It is in the southwest corner of the southeast section
of Fairfield Friends Cemetery. It is surrounded by a separate fence.
There is a sign on the gate but it is not visible from the road.

The new cemetery is fenced, mowed, and maintained. The sign on the
gate says, “Lick Branch Cemetery, est. ~1828.” All graves are marked
with flat modern stones that only have names and year dates. Many stones
have less information. There is a pile of old fieldstones and tablet
stones in the southwest corner of the cemetery. The caretaker indicated
that these will be used in a memorial.
